Press Releases

NLMK Group, an international metallurgical company, has supplied the first batch of high-strength Quend 1100 steel to one of the leaders in the lifting equipment market - Liebherr.

Steel from the Belgian company NLMK Clabecq will be used to produce a telescopic boom for a new type of Liebherr mobile crane with a lifting capacity of 230 tons. A prototype was manufactured and exhibited at the international exhibition of equipment for the construction and mining of minerals bauma 2019.

As part of bauma 2019, a delegation of NLMK Group led by President Grigory Fedorishin met with the leaders of Liebherr-Werk Ehingen GmbH (produces self-propelled cranes) and Liebherr-Purchasing Services GmbH and discussed the expansion of the partnership, in particular the development of the line of high-strength Quend brands and their application in the Liebherr models being developed.
