OAO Metalloinvest signed two long-term credit facility agreements totaling €16.7 million with ING Bank to fund the purchase of equipment at Ural Steel.
The company said Oct. 10 that it is modernizing its facilities to improve the quality of its rolled steel products and increase the proportion of high value-added products in its portfolio. The two facilities will be guaranteed by two separate export credit agencies.
A €11.5 million, 10-year credit line guaranteed by Euler Hermes Aktiengesellschaft will be used to build the Roller Treatment Furnace No. 1 and Heat Treatment Machine No. 1 complex.
A €5.2 million, eight-year credit facility guaranteed by SERV Schweizerische Exportrisikoversicherung will be used to modernize Ural Steel's four-strand continuous casting machine.
