Moscow, Russia – November 11, 2016 – Mechel PAO (MICEX: MTLR, NYSE: MTL), one of
the leading Russian mining and metals companies, reports its participation in
the 22nd International Industrial Exhibition Metal-Expo, which was held at the
All-Russia Exhibition Center in Moscow on November 8-11, 2016.
Within the expo’s framework, representatives of the Group’s steel division
enterprises held a series of important meetings with potential clients,
including Chinese and European companies. “Mechel Group’s booth became one of
the most visited and lively negotiation areas,” Mechel-Steel Management Company
OOO’s Chief Executive Officer Andrey Ponomarev noted. “This year we saw a great
influx of visitors and increased interest toward our steel companies’ products.
Over these four days we managed to reach dozens of new agreements, strengthen
and expand longstanding partnerships.”
Over 500 companies from 32 countries took part in the expo. The exhibition
welcomed over 30,000 visitors from construction, engineering, fuel and energy,
transport, logistics and steel trade industries.
Mechel’s corporate booth showcased the products of Chelyabinsk Metallurgical
Plant, Urals Stampings Plant, Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant, Izhstal and
Vyartsilya Metal Products Plant. Over the four days of the exhibition, some 30
employees of Mechel’s steel division (Mechel Steel Management Company OOO) and
service and sales company Mechel Service OOO worked at the booth. Guests were
offered full information about various kinds of the Group’s products.
As part of the exhibition, enterprises that upgraded their facilities, developed
and mastered new technologies, equipment and products, were awarded. Chelyabinsk
Metallurgical Plant won a gold medal for mastering production of hot-rolled
rolls from alloys and specialty steels. The medal-winning products are used in
aviation and space industry.
One of Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant’s novelties — steel zinc-plated 4-mm wire
ropes for use in the steering control system of civilian and military
helicopters — earned the exposition’s gold medal. The plant’s wire ropes are
different from those produced earlier by the type of lay of strands and the
diameter of wires within. Those give the new ropes additional endurance, which
extends their life by several times, while their extra firmness increases the
accuracy of steering the helicopter’s control rotor.
Also, as part of the Best Corporate Media in the Steelmaking Industry of Russia
and the CIS 2016 contest, the Group’s magazine Our Mechel won the Best Corporate
Magazine nomination. Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant’s corporate newspaper
Metallurgist, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, won the Best
Steelmaking and Hardware Plants Media nomination.
