‘The setting up of a large industrial corporation by United Machine Building Works and MetalloInvest will make use of Uralmash facilities more efficient,’ Evgeniy Sergeev, General Director of United Machine Building Works (aka OMZ (Obedinennye Mashinostroitelnye Zavody, formerly United Heavy Machinery), said to UrBC.

‘The idea behind uniting Uralmashzavod and ORMETO-YUMZ Heavy Engineering Joint Stock Co. is creating a strong and competitive Russian supplier of equipment to ore mining and metallurgical enterprises in this country and abroad, which is particularly important because of Russia’s upcoming entrance to the WTO. This integration will allow us to build up on our competitive advantages and make significant progress on the way to becoming the leading producer of metallurgical equipment on the NIS market,’ Mr. Sergeev said.
