MMK leads Russia’s flat-rolled and coated steel segments
This is evidenced by another ranking of the best Russian steel manufacturers and suppliers published by leading industry journal Metal Supply & Sales for the second half of 2021.
MMK was ranked first in the list of the best producers of flat-rolled products, as well as the best producers of galvanised and colour-coated metal. MMK has been making concerted efforts to reach the top rank in these key segments for the Company.
Over the past two decades, modern and highly efficient facilities have been built for producing high-margin products at the rolling mill and for the production of coated metal. These include state-of-the-art rolling facilities for producing heavy plates and high-quality cold-rolled steel for the automotive industry. High-capacity galvanizing and colour-coating facilities at the Magnitogorsk and Lysva (Perm Territory) sites enable the Company to maintain its position as the largest supplier of galvanized and colour-coated steel in the Russian market.
In addition, MMK was ranked among the top five producers of long products in the second half of 2021 by Metal Supply & Sales magazine. Two more MMK Group companies are also in the ranking: MMK-METIZ Magnitogorsk Metalware Plant was ranked second in the list of best manufacturers of metal products, and MMK Trading House was ranked fourth among the best steel mill trading houses.
The ranking of Russia's best manufacturers and traders of ferrous and non-ferrous metal products for the second half of 2021 was compiled by Metal Supply & Sales magazine based on questionnaires received from buyers, results of a poll of market experts, and a comprehensive analysis of companies' operations. The following criteria were taken into account in determining the rankings: business development dynamics, delivery volumes, customer service level, product quality, reliability of the supplier in meeting contractual obligations, and transparency of information provision.
