Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant

Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant

Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant (ChMK) is one of Russia’s largest integrated steelmakers producing quality and high-quality steel. ChMK is rare among Russian plants in that it has the right to grant its products its own index – ChS (Chelyabinsk Steel). The plant is also Russia’s biggest stainless steel producer.

ChMK manufactures a wide range of steel products – pig iron, steel semi-finished products for further processing, long and flat products from carbon, structural, tool and corrosion-proof steel, beams and rail products.

Nuclear industry, heavy and chemical engineering, power, automobile and agricultural machine building, bearing and pipe-rolling plants, constructors, producers of medical equipment and instruments – all that is far from being a complete list of economic sectors where ChMK’s products are used.

As its chief specialization, the plant produces a wide range of metal products – from rods to reinforcement, from bales of structural steel to long products for pipe-rolling and machine-building plants, as well as long square-section products. ChMK is Mechel’s chief flat products manufacturer.

The plant’s quality management system is certified as fully compliant with the international ISO 9001:2000 standard. The plant has also been awarded certificates by the UK-based Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steels (CARES), Russia’s Rostekhnadzor for the right to produce steel products for nuclear power stations, and Der Norske Veritas for producing steel billets.

In June 2015 the plant obtained a certificate of compliance with the requirements of the Customs Union’s Technical Regulations for its rails of up to 100 meters in length. This certificate enables the company to supply Russian Railways OAO with Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant’s products.
