NLMK Group tops Metal-Expo’2021 competitions
NLMK Group, a global steel company, received multiple awards at Metal-Expo’2021, the 27th International Industrial Exhibition, for projects aimed at developing energy-efficient steel grades, increasing equipment productivity, and enhancing customer service. It also topped Expo’s Best Exhibition Stand contest.
NLMK received gold medals for:
- Developing and introducing a process for producing energy-efficient grades of grain-oriented and non-grain-oriented steel with improved magnetic properties.
- Its project aimed at upgrading steelmaking operations at NLMK Lipetsk that boosted the productivity of one of its BOF shops by 15% to 10 million tonnes of steel, while decreasing the shop’s environmental impact due to new efficient gas purification systems capturing up to 99.9% of dust.
Additionally, the Company received a silver medal for its efforts to increase hot strip mill productivity at NLMK Lipetsk: in 2020, the mill’s output exceeded 6.5 million tonnes of rolled steel, which is 6.2% higher than in 2019 and 12% higher than the mill’s initial productivity.
NLMK.shop, the Company’s online store, topped Russia’s Best Internet Project 2021 organized by the Metal Supply and Sales Magazine, for the third time, this year in the Service nomination. The contest jury commended NLMK’s continuous efforts to enhance customer experience: expanding its offering and warehouse network, creating new opportunities for shipment, and accelerating order processing.
NLMK Group’s stand was named Expo’s Best Exhibition. The jury appreciated its design and functionality, and the active engagement of Company representatives.
