Steel

The business of Mechel’s steel segment includes manufacturing of rolled products from carbon steel and specialty steels, flat stainless steel products, structural shapes, high value-added steel products, including hardware and stampings, as well as production of billets.

Mechel’s steel segment is comprised of metallurgical enterprises in Russia, Ukraine and Lithuania.

Mechel is Russia’s top producer of specialty steels and alloys with the widest product range, and is Russia’s second largest rolled products manufacturer. Mechel is also Russia’s leading producer of reinforcement and rolled wire.

One of Mechel's steel segment’s competitive advantages is its significant share on the high value-added product markets, primarily specialty steels, stainless rolls and hardware, where on several counts we hold a leading place in Russia. This advantage is upheld by unique technologies, which are further developed to expand the product line and improve quality. Mechel’s strong positions on the steel market are ensured due to the group’s own expansive service and sales network.

In 2012 Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant launched the first line of its universal rolling mill – a complex producing quality steel, which will operate in the same production cycle as the mill itself. The mill’s chief product will be new types of rails up to 100 meters in length, of high resistance to wear, contact endurance and reliability in low temperatures. The mill was fully launched in July 2013. It will enable Mechel to become Russia’s chief supplier of long rails that would be up to every requirement of both Russian and foreign railways. This guarantees the company a significant share in all major infrastructure projects in the next several decades. The mill also produces various types of structural shapes.

Mechel’s steel segment also includes the world-renowned Kaslinsky Plant of Art Casting, one of Russia’s oldest plants, which preserves ancient traditions of art casting and architectural iron casting, and is known for unerringly high quality and a rich collection of models.
