They form a single production chain for production of high-quality steels for further rework.
– I was surprised with a full production cycle at Stankomash and location of all facilities at one site. There are great examples of successful collaboration between Russian and Italian companies, very high level of quality. Of course, we were glad to see our working equipment at BVK – a steel-making complex Danieli, – noticed Lorenzo Mozetic. – Having seen the highest quality and desire for growth, we decided that our company has a possibility to get good products at the output.

– I have been there before, I remember not only certification of Stankomash Industrial park but also how we supported production of pumps of Transneft company within the program of import substitution of oil and gas equipment. Only upgrowth of the strategic order makes possible creation of industrial production of such quality. Changes have occurred since that time; the territory has flourished. Stankomash Industrial park is a worthy example to follow, – shared his impressions the governor of Nizhny Novgorod region Gleb Nikitin.

As one of the agreements is concluded between these companies, we decided to sign it directly at one of the sites.

We looked back and totalized everything, so the agreement was signed here today, – said Aleksey Teksler, the Governor of Chelyabinsk region.
