Of course, the iconic works were related to the creation of a new product line. In particular, the emergence of new grease Klueberplex-HARP and further development of next-generation products for the w / d of transport — a cylindrical dual CRU-duplex bearings and tapered roller bearing cassette TBU, work on which will be completed this year.
Lazouski for forging and mechanical plant past year was significant because the company started the project on a set of energy saving in the amount of 50 million USD. In addition to work on the reconstruction of thermal units and heating furnaces CC-1 and CC-2, this project also includes investments in production technology TSGSH and agricultural land.
