Mechel, founded in 2003, is one of the world's leading mining and metals companies. The company has production facilities in 11 of Russia’s regions and abroad.
Mechel is comprised of more than 20 production enterprises, producing coal, iron ore, steel, rolled products, ferroalloys, heat and electric power. All of the Group’s enterprises work within a single production chain – from raw materials to high value-added products. The holding also owns three trade ports, transport operators and international sales and service networks. Mechel’s products are marketed domestically and internationally.
Mining, steel, power, transport and sales enterprises of Mechel work within a single production chain and form a whole vertically intergrated production complex. A part of our products we sell to the market, another part is used as raw material for Mechel's production of high value-added products.
Company’s assets produce a full chain of raw materials and high value-added products: coal, iron ore, pig iron, steel, billets, rolled products, hardware and electricity generation. Shipping and sales are secured by its own logistics and sales networks. Such vertically integrated complexes with a balanced production chain and its own secured resource and power base are more effective for the purposes of cost savings and less vulnerable to market volatility.
Mechel is one of the world’s leading mining and metals companies. The Group’s mining segment produces a wide range of coal products – coking coal concentrate, anthracites, PCI, steam coal, iron ore and a wide assortment of coke chemicals.
The steel segment's facilities produce billets, flat and long rolls, structural shapes and sections, rebar, a wide assortment of hardware, stampings and forgings of carbon, construction, engineering, high-speed, stainless, corrosion-resistant and other specialty steels and alloys. Also, within this product range, the company may produce various steel grades to a customer’s specifications.
Companies of Mechel’s power segment ensure generation and sales of electricity and heat both for Mechel’s enterprises and to third parties in order to obtain additional profit.
The business of Mechel’s steel segment includes manufacturing of rolled products from carbon steel and specialty steels, flat stainless steel products, structural shapes, high value-added steel products, including hardware and stampings, as well as production of billets.
Mechel’s steel segment comprises metallurgical enterprises in Russia and abroad.
Mechel is Russia’s top producer of specialty steels and alloys with the widest product range, and is Russia’s second largest rolls manufacturer. Mechel is also Russia’s leading producer of reinforcement and rolled wire.
One of Mechel's steel segment’s competitive advantages is its significant share on the high value-added product markets, primarily specialty steels, stainless rolls and hardware, with a leading position in Russia on several counts. This advantage is upheld by unique technologies, which are further developed to expand the product range and improve quality. Mechel’s strong positions on the steel market are ensured due to the group’s own expansive service and sales network.
In 2012 Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant launched the first line of its universal rolling mill – a complex producing quality steel, which will operate in the same production cycle as the mill itself. The mill’s chief product will be new types of rails up to 100 meters in length, of high resistance to wear, contact endurance and reliability in low temperatures. The mill was fully launched in July 2013. It will enable Mechel to become Russia’s chief supplier of long rails that would be up to every requirement of both Russian and foreign railways. This guarantees the company a significant share in all major infrastructure projects over the next several decades. The mill also produces various types of sections.
Mechel’s steel segment also includes the world-renowned Kaslinsky Plant of Art Casting, one of Russia’s oldest plants, which preserves ancient traditions of art casting and architectural iron casting, and is known for unerringly high quality and a rich collection of models.
