MMK ships record volume of galvanized steel in 2018
This result is 11.9% higher than the previous record of 1,134 million tonnes of galvanized steel set by the Company in 2017.
Over the past 15 years MMK has been consistently increasing the production of galvanized steel. In 2002 and 2008, the Company commissioned two high-performance continuous hot-dip galvanizing lines at its metal-coating shop. In 2012, MMK commissioned the second stage of a cold-rolling unit at sheet-rolling shop 11, comprising a continuous hot-dip galvanizing line, as well as a combined continuous annealing and hot-dip galvanizing aggregate. In July 2017, MMK put into operation the No.3 unit for continuous hot-dip galvanizing with a capacity of 360,000 tonnes per year.
Development of coated metal production is in line with MMK’s goal to increase output of high value-added advanced processed products.
