In addition, in July Kametstal steelworkers rolled a batch of car axles for domestic car builders.

“In July, distributors worked for the domestic market of Ukraine. In particular, at the 400/200 mill, an order was fulfilled for batches of shaped, sectional profiles. This gives confidence in our victory and the restoration of the country. Our steel is needed in Ukraine – these are future prospects for both our enterprise and the Ukrainian economy,” said Dmitry Lippa, CEO of the plant.
