NLMK Group, Russia’s leading manufacturer of high value added steel products, received the status of preferred category A supplier of transformer steel by the Alstom international group.
The highest category (category A) was allocated following the results of a production audit performed at the Lipetsk production site and at VIZ Steel in Yekaterinburg by experts of the company which is a global leader in energy machine building.
Alstom representatives examined the production processes; magnetic testing labs; sales and logistic services; and other departments of the production sites.
Mr Ilya Guschin, NLMK Vice President for Sales, said that “NLMK Group is the only manufacturer of transformer steel in Russia. The company’s share in the Russian market for this type of high-tech product is 99% and approximately 9% in the global market. Alstom auditors remarked on the high quality of NLMK Group companies in terms of technology, equipment and production control throughout the cycle. The fact that we were recognized as a top category supplier serves as yet another confirmation of the effectiveness of our work as part of Strategy 2017, aimed at increasing the share of high value added products in our output.”
