OMK took part in the Metal-Expo 2015
OMK’s exhibit stand, where over 30 company representatives were working, was designed as a recognizable modern city environment with the majority of constructions made of metal. The stand showed OMK’s vast possibilities for creating steel solutions for constructing infrastructure sites, such as stadiums, airports, shopping centers, parking areas, and housing.
The staff and managers of the company’s factories and the Moscow office took an active part in the series of industry conferences, roundtable discussions, and presentations.
OMK received a host of awards and prizes. The staff of Vyksa Metallurgical Works received the exhibit’s gold medal for designing and launching coiled stock and pipes for field pipelines made of 05HGB steel that meet the requirements for resisting carbon dioxide and hydrogen sylphide corrosion. The 05HGB steel is one of OMK’s own metallurgical designs implemented jointly with the Bardin Central Research Institute for Ferrous Metallurgy. The jury awarded the silver medal to the Vyksa factory for designing and launching the production of flats and large diameter pipes that meet the requirements for resistance to hydrogen sylphide cracking and cold. The certificates were signed by Alexander Romanov, President of the Russian Union of Metal and Steel Suppliers, and Ilya Chigir, Director of the Metallurgy and Materials Department (under the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade).
OMK also received awards for its corporate communications. As part of the Metal-Vision competition for the best metallurgical video in Russia and the CIS, the company won in the “Best Script” category and “Panel’s Special Choice” for “Man’s Great Inventions: the Wheel” sci-fi film. The documentary aims at getting viewers interested in the history of wheel production and use, and raising the prestige of blue-collar occupations. It shows how the production facilities at Vyksa Steel Works operate, making over half of Russia’s railway wheels. The company’s “OMK Territory” newspaper was voted the best corporate media among the pipe holdings at a corporate communications conference. Valery Pokumeiko, VSW’s leading photo and video specialist, won in the “Pipe Up” photo competition, one of its partners being OMK. The exhibition’s organizers marked the company’s corporate stand with a trophy.
Metal-Expo 2015 is of the largest industry exhibitions in Russia and the CIS. Over 560 leading metallurgical companies, holdings, equipment and engineering solutions suppliers, and the largest metal traders from 32 countries took part in the exhibition this year.
