January 23, 2013. The January issue of the metallurgical trade magazine Metallosnabzheniye I Sbyt carried a rating of the country’s leading manufacturers and suppliers for ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgical produce in the second half of 2012.

The traditional rating of the Russian metallurgy sector’s best producers and traders was based on the customer questionnaires, surveys of the metal market experts, and a multi-faceted analysis of the companies’ activities. The best enterprises were singled out with the help of the following criteria: business development dynamics, shipment volumes, quality of after-sales service, quality of produce, and a supplier’s dependability in terms of how well the contractual obligations are adhered to. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) was given the top position among the best rolled metal manufacturers and the second position from the top on the list of the leading advanced-level processing goods producers. MMK Group’s metal goods plant MMK-METIZ was one of the top three metal goods manufacturers in the second half of 2012.

‘MMK’s top position in the rating of flat stock manufacturers stemmed from the company management’s careful crafting and implementation of a strategy targeted at prioritizing the development of the forming production segment and at building the facilities that would produce highly profitable advanced-level processing goods. Over the last few years, the company has set up a number of hi tech, up-to-date production lines aimed at making high quality rolled stock with enhanced value-added. First and foremost, this means the hot-rolled plate iron-making Mill 5000 and the modern cold-roll Mill 2000 that is meant for making automobile body sheets,’ MMK reports.
