March 2, 2105. A group of Russian and Kazakh delegates, headed by Governor of Chelyabinsk Region Boris Dubrovsky and Governor of Kostanai Region Nuraly Saduakasov visited Vysota 239 Department of Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant (ChTPZ).

A tour of Chelyabinsk Region’s largest industrial enterprise was part of the Kazakhstan’s representatives’ visit to the Southern Urals in order to reinforce the two parties’ foreign economic connections and to negotiate over some promising cooperation projects, the plant’s press service reports.

The department’s production facilities and the company’s corporate philosophy (aka White Metallurgy) were presented to the visitors by ChTPZ Group’s Director-General Alexander Grubman.

‘Our Group and Kazakhstan have been partners for many years now; the company is supplying this neighboring country with nearly the entire range of its products. Most of the goods are the meant for the oil and gas industry, for one, these are our Vysota 239 pipes,’ Grubman said.

‘Around 70% of our CIS shipments are destined for Kazakhstan; we delivered over 140,000,000 kg of pipes there last year. I hope this year we’ll keep on cooperating, and even on a larger scale.’

‘Chelyabinsk Region produces iron ore that we deliver onto Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works. Some of Kazakhstan’s raw materials end up at Vysota 239 as steel sheets to be used for making hi tech pipes. This is one example of our win-win cooperation. Both our countries have potential that should be mutually relied on,’ Saduakasov said during his tour of the plant.

‘I like ChTPZ production departments, I am glad to have visited such an up-to-date plant.’

ChTPZ Group and Kazakhstan work closely together in oil and gas and education sectors. In September 2014, a memorandum on scientific and technological cooperation was signed by ChTPZ Group, Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works, and KazTransOil during the Russia-Kazakhstan Interregional Cooperation Forum. The main goals of the agreement are to elaborate unified Customs Union norms and to ensure environmentally safe and reliable transportation of oil and mineral products.
