Severstal Participates in Metal Expo 2014

OAO Severstal, one of the world's largest vertically integrated steel and mining companies, joins Metal Expo 2014.

This year, Severstal will feature the Building Future Together concept booth telling about Severstal's participation in major national infrastructure projects including Russky Bridge, Spartak Stadium, St. Petersburg Ring Road, as well as residential and commercial real estate.

Severstal will focus on promoting its products for the construction industry. These products include ArmaNorma, a new type of A600 class rebars with unique strength, and Steel Silk / Steel Velvet, two ranges of color-coated rolled steel specially designed for steel shingle applications.

Our booth will display sample products of Severstal Balakovo Long Product Mill, a subsidiary of Severstal Russian Steel launched this last July.

“This exhibition presents a great opportunity to communicate with our customers and prospects, and to conduct negotiations,” says Dmitry Gorshkov, Director of Sales and Marketing, Severstal Russian Steel. “Our experts will be happy to answer any questions about our range, technical capabilities and the ways to do business with us.”

Severstal's booth will also feature products for other Russian industries including a wide range of offerings for automakers (including rolled steel for face blanks used by foreign automakers in Russia), energy companies and machinery industry (such as high-strength steel, armor and shipbuilding steel).

Domestic market is our priority, with 65% of all products manufactured by Severstal Russian Steel in the first 9 months of 2014 shipped to Russian customers, compared to 63% in the first 9 months of 2013.

Large infrastructure development projects also use products of Severstal Metiz, the metalware subsidiary of OAO Severstal. Key metalware products for the construction industry include cable systems, various fasteners, structural shapes, mesh structures and fiber. All these products of Severstal Metiz and the whole range of our engineering and service solutions will be featured at Metal Expo 2014, booth 1B23. Apart from product offerings, we will keep our traditional focus on dealers and end customers, for whom we will host dedicated conferences.

Metal Expo 2014 will also see other subsidiaries of Severstal Russian Steel: Cherepovets Steel Mill, Izhora Pipe Mill, Severstal Steel Solutions Building and Structure Design Plant, and TD Severstal-Invest, a member of Severstal Russian Steel Distribution Network.

Backgrounder:

ArmaNorma is a joint development of Cherepovets Steel Mill and Scientific Research Center Stroitelstvo. This novelty rebar product has unique properties due to presence of special chemical compounds that increase its strength beyond that of rebar classes A400 and A500C while maintaining its plasticity.  ArmaNorma manufacturing technology was demonstrated among other intellectual property products of Severstal at international exhibitions and received multiple awards.

Steel Silk is manufactured in several varieties including Classic (for regions with average humidity and solar exposure), Water Protection (for regions with high humidity), Sun Protection (for regions with high solar exposure) and Double protection (for regions with both high humidity and high solar exposure).

Steel Velvet differs from Steel Silk in that its finish is not smooth but textured. Steel Silk and Steel Velvet are environmentally safe and fireproof products manufactured in full compliance with all Russian and European standards. These products are offered in colors close to traditional European roofing colors.

OAO Severstal performs all product tests indicated in product specifications and submits its products to radiation control to confirm their compliance with hygiene standards and satisfy customer needs in the area of radiation protection as required by the federal laws of the Russian Federation.
