Severstal Steel Solutions is all for certification of steel production plants
7 june 2017

At the conference "Steel Structures:  situation and prospects" general director of Severstal Steel Solutions, Vladislav Vasiliev, described how voluntary certification can improve the quality of industrial and civil facilities constructed with the use of steel.

A prerequisite for the introduction of voluntary certification of steel production plants, according to Vladislav Vasiliev, is the intense price competition in the Russian market, which often adversely affects the quality of steel structures.
Besides a low price also leads to 0-6 per cent profitability of a producer, which prevents them from investing in the modernization of production facilities, staff training and appraisal, and improvement of work quality and productivity.

Certification of steel production plants is necessary because the construction market continues to show a decline and the capacity of the steel market is unlikely to significantly increase. Production of steel structures mainly grows because of bridges. It is no coincidence that in the last few years by various estimates about half of the total number of steel production plants have become bankrupt. Certification of producers will help to protect the Russian steel market from unwanted import and allow companies to develop smoothly.
