OMK to Merge ATZ Pipe Plant in Tatarstan with Vyksa Plant
Russian pipe maker United Metallurgical Company OM has completed the reorganization of its ATZ pipe plant in the Republic of Tatarstan in the form of a merger with the Vyksa plant of OMK in the Nizhny Novgorod Region. Since June 1, the OMK plant in Tatarstan continues to operate and fulfil its obligations to customers and employees in full as a branch of VSW JSC in Almetyevsk and ATZ JSC as a legal entity has ceased its activities.
The OMK plant in Almetyevsk is one of the largest producers of steel electric-welded pipes with high-quality outer coating in the Volga region. It specializes in the production of small and medium diameter pipes. Mr Arthur Pleshkov, who previously held the position of Managing Director of the OMK Almetyevsk Pipe Plant, was appointed head of the Almetyevsk branch of JSC VMZ.
The reorganization of the plant is connected with the transformation of OMK's sales strategy and system and is intended to increase the synergy of cooperation between the two production sites of the company, as well as the quality of service for customers. The merger of the two enterprises will expand their production capabilities and comprehensive proposals for the supply of tubular products and rolled metal products for customers in industry, construction, housing and communal services and other areas of regional markets.
