EVRAZ Metall Inprom wins
national industry awards for 2015

EVRAZ Metall Inprom has confirmed its status as Russia’s most reliable metals trader for the third time in a row. It won numerous awards at the „Russian Metal Market” conference, organised by the Russian Union of Metal Suppliers and the Metal Supply and Sales magazine, on November 9. Its offices in Krasnodar, Perm and St Petersburg won nominations in the „Best Metal Service Centres in Russia” competition, while those in Taganrog, Bryansk, Yekaterinburg, Krasnoyarsk and Vladivostok scored highly in the „Best Metal Dealer in Russia” category.

EVRAZ ZSMK’S rebar is used major
infrastructure projects in RUSSIA

EVRAZ has been supplying its At800 rebar for projects to make airfield slabs for airports in Eastern and Western Siberia and for the project to rebuild slabs of auxiliary traces at the Severny cosmodrome. At800 is thermally strengthened rolled steel that is spiral or crescent-shaped, and it is used to build reinforced or complex structures that constantly carry dynamic loads. The high-tensile metal helps to reinforce concrete structures, extending their useful life. At800 is in high demand on the market, and EVRAZ ZSMK produces more than 100 thousand tonnes a year.
