Russian steelmaker Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works (MMK) has announced that it shipped 1.27 million mt of galvanized steel in 2018, the highest annual figure in the history of the company.

According to MMK, this result is 11.9 percent higher than the previous record of 1.13 million mt of galvanized steel set by the company in 2017.

Over the past 15 years, MMK has been consistently increasing its production of galvanized steel. In 2002 and 2008, the company commissioned two high-performance continuous hot-dip galvanizing lines at its metal-coating shop. In 2012, MMK commissioned the second stage of a cold-rolling unit at its sheet-rolling shop 11. In July 2017, MMK put into operation its No.3 unit for continuous hot-dip galvanizing with a capacity of 360,000 mt per year.
