Our Story: Sawatzky's Russian Operations
The Moscow operations of The Sawatzky Group grew from its predecessor, F. W. Sawatzky Ltd., located in Winnipeg, Canada (that company now operates under the name FWS Group). F. W. Sawatzky was and is a successful Canadian developer and builder with operations throughout Western Canada. In 2013, the Canadian company celebrated its 60th anniversary.
At the end of the 1980’s, with monumental political, social and economic changes occurring in Russia, many new business opportunities were becoming available. Two Russian natives who had successfully immigrated to Canada approached F. W. Sawatzky with the idea of expanding the company’s operations into Russia. In 1990, the Sawatzky Group in Moscow commenced operations.
Throughout the 1990’s in Russia, Sawatzky was involved in the construction, development and management of ofﬁce buildings. Our team learned how to work in Russia and bring leading Western technology and know-how into the design and construction of our projects. Our tenants and clients have included many internationally recognized companies. In 2006, we understood that homeowners and their families wanted a well-located, well-planned and thoroughly-engineered subdivision that would deliver high quality homes and a modern-neighborhood lifestyle. We saw that market demand for single-family home subdivisions in the Moscow Region was growing. After acquiring land and beginning development, Novie Veshki - life as it should be - was born.
