Metallurgical deoxidizers plant to be built in MMK Industrial Park
The new plant is expected to be launched in Q1 2019. Its products will be unique in many respects and will be designed for primary deoxidization of metal from steel-making units, at the metal finishing plants and at the ladle furnace units. The production capacity will be up to 10,000 tonnes of deoxidizers per year. The geographical distribution will cover both the domestic market and export destinations such as Europe, Asia, and CIS.
The agreement was signed by Vladimir Dremov, director at MMK Industrial Park, Alexey Bobov, director at the Chelyabinsk Region Investment Development Agency, and Evgeny Zherdev, director at Metallurgic Deoxidizers Plant, at the 24th international industrial exhibition Metal-Expo.
The subsidiary company of Metallurgic Deoxidizers Plant, ‘Trade House TMZ’, has been producing and supplying deoxidizers to the steel market in Russia, CIS and Europe since 2015. The company's know-how is at the heart of deoxidizer production. The enterprise also includes engineering section and a Research & Development centre.

The Chelyabinsk Region Investment Development Agency noted that the project is an example of industrial cooperation between innovative enterprises and flagships of the regional and national economy. Such cooperation improves the efficiency of production processes, helps diversify the economy and create jobs.
