MMK proves leader on FRP and deep-level processing goods markets

July 18, 2014. In the first half of 2014, Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) remained the leading flat rolled products supplier and was also the top supplier of deep-level processing goods on the home market.

These are the data provided by Metallosnabzhenie I Sbyt magazine that carried a rating of leading ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgical products suppliers in the first half of 2014. MMK is No.1 in the FRP Supplies rating as usual. Besides, this year the company moved from the second to the first place in the Deep-Level Processing Goods category.

The improvements in the company's position against other major metal goods suppliers has to do with the fact that MMK has been consistently working on its production development strategy focused on production of highly profitable metal goods with high added value. In 2002 and 2008, two continuous hot-dip galvanizing units were launched; in 2004 and 2009, two polymeric coating units were built. In addition, the company launched another extension to the cold-roll facility in July of 2012. The facility comprised a hot-dip galvanizing unit and a continuous annealing/hot-dip galvanizing unit.
