Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant to Continue Sales to Austria

18December2017
Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant (ChMK PAO, part of Mechel Group) confirmed its rebar steel productions compliance with Austrian standards following supervision audit. The audits positive results enable the plant to continue sales of steel rolls to the Austrian market.

Experts from BTI Bautechnisches lnstitut audit company monitored ChMK’s quality management control and took part in taking probes and conducting tests of the rebar steel. Experts inspected the rolling mill, quality control and certification center, technical control department, central analysis lab and testing center.

During these checks, the auditors confirmed the validity of ChMK’s certificate that the plant’s V550V rebar steel of 10 to 20 mm in diameter is compliant with Austria’s ONORM standard. This certificate was first obtained in May 2017 and enables the plant to supply this product to Austria’s market.

“ChMK is actively expanding into Austria’s steel rolls market. Over the past two months alone, we produced and shipped off over 1,100 tonnes of rebar rolls of 10 to 20 mm in diameter. The plant also supplies its Austrian partners with flat rolls and H-beams. These products are extensively used in Austria’s construction industry,” ChMK PAO’s Managing Director Anatoly Schetinin explained.
