To justify their confidence we must perform all the work with impeccable accuracy».
The first deliveries have been successfully carried out. The customer was satisfied with the product quality and signed new contracts with ChKPZ.

One more challenging order for fuel and power industry which our plant is carrying out is connected with a major high-sulfide production field in Orenburgskaya oblast. A new material has been developed specifically for this order. Technological development of special flanges, production and dispatch of the pilot batch have taken place and been a success. The shipment of the contractual lot is around the corner. «For this client quality and reliability are above all else, - says Mr. A.Dzenov - Not so long ago they conceptually bought only constituents produced in Europe. After they have learned about our capacities and quality level of our product they decided to save some money. If there is a positive result we’ll have one more major permanent customer».
