MMK wins national competition in the field of import substitution

Representatives of the Russian government, State Duma, Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as well as other organisations and departments were present at the awards ceremony, which took place in Moscow on the 17th November.

In the past summer, MMK commissioned its continuous hot dip galvanising unit No 3, thanks to which the company’s production capacity for galvanised steel has increased by nearly 20% - up to 2 million tonnes a year. The main consumers of these products are the construction industry and producers of containers and packaging. The production capacity of the new unit is 360,000 tonnes a year; it uses cold rolled strip without covering, which is produced in the sheet rolling plant No 11. The total construction costs amounted to RUB 6 billion.

This is not the first time that Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works has won the prize. In 2016, the company won the award for developing and implementing the industrial production of the high-tensile and wear-resistant MAGSTRONG steels. The annual “Priority” competition in the field of import substitution was established with the goal of identifying and encouraging the best Russian technologies, solutions, goods and services. To date, the “Priority” award is Russia’s first and only authoritative award for the best enterprises in the country, which have achieved the most significant successes in the area of import substitution.
