As reported, in 2019, the output of continuously cast billets decreased by 3.5 times compared to 2018 – to 83 thousand tons from 289 thousand tons.

DMPZ specializes in the production and re Alization of metal products: rolled sections, cast iron pipes, structural elements made of ferrous metals, nuts and shovels.
