There is no doubt about success; the supplier of equipment is the world leader in the industry.
Petr Shimukovich, General Director of Miory Steel, “Everything that exists in the former Soviet Union is about 0.2 millimeter. This equipment is capable to produce a sheet of 0.1. That is, it is half as thick. The question was not only to get high-quality goods, but also within the disbursement approved for implementation.”
An investment project of € 200 million provides for 650 job opportunities. After production start-up, 15 wagonload of products will be sent out from here every day, and the railroad has already been extended.
