Best equipment for your production processes

The Russian Federation has long been an important strategic market for SMS group. Its iron and steel industry ranks among the world's largest. Continuous growth in the region means Russian producers are keen to upgrade their equipment and invest in new plants so they can meet future demand. Responding to this opportunity, we built up our presence on the market and invested heavily in facilities to supply products and services to Russian customers.

Our Head Office is located in Chelyabinsk, just a few kilometers from our workshop. Furthermore, we operate branches in most major metallurgical centers, giving us the capacity on the ground to meet your requirements.

This city produces nearly 25% of large-diameter pipes manufactured in the country. It's also responsible for one-third of smelted ferroalloys and ball-bearing steel, and more than 60% of stainless steel. Many metallurgical plants are concentrated around Chelyabinsk.
