The document was signed by Evgeny Andreev Director of the Magnezit Group’s representative office in Chelyabinsk and Danila Pykhov Director of BVK LLC.

Cooperation between the facilities began in 2013, the turnover of consumed refractory products at BVK LLC is constantly increasing, the range is extending and the volume is growing. The reliability and stability of the supplier is the key to a successful operation of the foundry and forging division of KONAR Industrial Group which includes BVK foundry.

The purpose of the agreement made is to further strengthen and develop cooperation between BVK and Magnezit Group in all areas of common interest.

– With the growth of production, especially in such a serious industry as metallurgy, a high-quality and reliable supplier is needed, – noted Danila Pykhov. – For seven years we have made sure that Magnezit is a reliable partner. It is one of the recognized world leaders in the refractory industry, always at the forefront of the production and application of magnesia refractories. Last year, when there were restrictions related to the pandemic, Magnezit did not delay any supplies of refractory products to us – everything was supplied on time. The main production facilities of Magnezit Group are located in Chelyabinsk region. From my point of view, it is most correct to develop and strengthen cooperation within the region.

– We have been working with BVK since its establishment, – said Evgeny Andreev. – We know the company for a long time and are interested in continuing cooperation. As part of regional cooperation, we strive to build the most effective and long-term partnership relations with producers of Chelyabinsk region. In connection with the extension of BVK production and the construction of a new MFT plant, it is planned to increase the consumption of our products. We will continue to exchange experience, as we have done before, in particular, to test new refractory materials. Our specialists have visited Stankomash Industrial Park, and the specialists of BVK got acquainted with the production of Magnezit in Satka. We will strengthen relations not only in the development of production, but also in the social and cultural areas of work of our companies.
