Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant earns certificate for sales to Slovakia construction market

Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant (BMK AO, part of Mechel Group) passed inspection of its rebar wire and strand productions compliance with Slovakias construction standards. This certificate enables the plant to sell its rebar products to Slovakia and expand its client base among Slovak constructors.

Slovakia’s Technicky a Skusobny Ustav Stavebny (TSUS) certifier conducted the inspection.

Experts certified the plant’s 5-mm rebar wire and 7-wire reinforcement strands of 9.3 to 15.7 mm in diameter, produced in compliance with European standards. They are used in constructing high-rise buildings, bridges, tunnels, multistorey parkings, roads etc.

TSUS experts monitored production technology, witnessed the testing of rebar strands and wire in the plant’s central lab and examined the plant’s quality control management system. They also tested chosen samples in TSUS’s own lab in Bratislava for their stress-related properties and durability. Test results confirmed a consistently high quality level of Beloretsk rebar wire and strands.

“These certificates give us the right to sell our products in a promising European market where these construction products are in demand. We plan to expand our presence there thanks to new clients,” Beloretsk Metallurgical Plant’s Sales Director Anton Khlynov noted.
