Vladimir Lisin became the leading supplier of metal for football stadiums in Russia

Magnitogorsk Metallurgical Combine of Viktor Rashnikov outperformed the largest metallurgists. However, the purchase of metal for the construction of stadiums "weather" Russian manufacturers still did not do because of its modest volume - an average of about 100 thousand tons per year.
Metallurgical products for the construction of stadiums for the World Cup, which was launched in Moscow on June 14, were supplied by Severstal, Mechel, Evraz, Metalloinvest, TMK, OMK, NLMK and MMK, the Russian Steel Association reported. In total, according to her data, the eight largest metallurgists required 200,000 tons of rolled metal.

Almost 25% of all steel (49,140 tons) used for the construction of the facilities was supplied by NLMK, the representative of Vedomosti said. The company's products were used in the construction of 10 stadiums-that is, all but Fisch in Sochi and Spartak in Moscow, follow from the data of Russian Steel. But these stadiums were built much earlier - in 2014. According to analysts ACRA Maxim Khudalov, NLMK was able to earn on these contracts about 1.965 billion rubles.

The second place in the final table was shared by Severstal and Evraz - both companies shipped 20% (40 000 tonnes) of steel needed for new stadiums. Almost half the metal of Severstal (47.5%) went to the construction of Zenit Arena in St. Petersburg, a company spokesman said. 40 000 tons is 0.012% of shipments of Severstal for 2014-2016. (32.1 million tons). "Participation in the construction of stadiums is a positive topic for business, despite a small amount," - said a representative of Severstal.

"In general, we estimate the consumption of rolled metal for the construction of stadiums for the World Cup and related infrastructure in the amount of about 100 000 tons per year, which is not so significant against the background of the total annual metal consumption. However, despite the company's extensive experience in the construction of sports facilities, participation in these projects was particularly responsible. In addition, the work on them allowed us to develop the competence of our distribution network in terms of delivering small lots on time directly to construction sites, "the press service of Severstal cites the words of the sales director of the company Evgenia Chernyakova.

Evraz, in addition to the stadiums, also supplied steel for the construction of the Platov airport in Rostov-on-Don, a company spokesman said.
