Open Joint-Stock Company «Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works» is a large-scale enterprise of the Russian ferrous industry, ranking among the world’s largest steel making companies. It is a large steel manufacturing complex providing a complete production process chain, from iron-ore raw materials preparation to high-level processing of ferrous metals. OJSC «MMK» offers a wide range of steel products in which the high-value-added deep processing products predominate.
MMK continues to implement its strategy of channeling the investments to technical re-equipment, reconstruction and modernization of production. The launch of 5,000 mm Plate Mill and construction of a Cold Rolling Complex are noteworthy among the biggest recent projects.
The 5,000 mm Plate Mill is the key element in the construction of the MMK’s plate production complex. The mill is designed for manufacturing cost-effective mill products – heavy-gauge plate up to 4,850 mm wide for the oil and gas sector, ship building, bridge engineering and machinery construction. The 5,000 mm Plate Mill has an annual production capacity of about 1.5 million tons. The 5,000 mm Plate Mill came into operation in July 2009. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin attended the commissioning of MMK's new mill and highly praised the new facility. As a result of this project, MMK obtained great flexibility, in terms of production of high-specification hot-rolled stock and plate mill products using state-of-the-art metal forming technologies.
Another large-scale investment project under implementation at MMK is construction of a state-of-the-art Cold Rolling Complex. The primary function of the workshop under construction is manufacturing high-quality cold-rolled and galvanized steel using the most advanced technologies, for outer and inner auto parts production as well as household appliances production and construction engineering.
Moreover, MMK proceeds now with its work on the implementation of the MMK-Atakash Steel Production Complex construction project in Turkey, in order to strengthen the MMK’s positions in the Middle East which is the company’s key export region. The Complex with an annual capacity of 2.3 million tons will produce hot-rolled and galvanized steel as well as plastic-coated rolled products.
