UrBC, Magnitogorsk, Chelyabinsk Region, February 9, 2011. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) Mill 5000 has by now been fully engaged in terms of product orders. The mill produced 127,000 tons of hot-rolled goods in January 2011 against 112,000 tons last December, MMK reports. Now Mill 5000 projected capacity comes to 1.5m tons of rolled stock a year.

‘Our strategy is aimed at creating an up-to-date production site and launching new product types with high value-added that enjoy demand first and foremost in Russia. For one, MMK is now engaged in the implementation of the decade’s largest project within Russia’s ferrous metallurgical industry – our plate Mill 5000,’ says MMK Chairman of the BOD Viktor Rashnikov.

Mill 5000 was launched in the summer of 2009. The mill can now manufacture cold- and hot-rolled stock as well as produce sheets of varying thickness and width, depending on the consumers’ requirements for LDPs.

The enterprise’s key customers are Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant, Volzhsky Tube Rolling Plant, Vyksunsky Metallurgical Plant, and a number of Russian machine-, ship-, and boiler-building enterprises.
