In the plenary part of the conference, Tatyana Kuchina, head of sales of non-ferrous metal rolled products of UMMC, presented a report on the development production and sale of rolled non-ferrous metals at the company's enterprises in the context of instability in the economy and rising prices for raw materials. “UMMC continues to maintain its leading positions in the non-ferrous rolled metal market due to a competent marketing and sales strategy, timely modernization of equipment and improvement of technologies. These changes allow us to promptly respond to market demands, to produce high quality products with high margins, ”noted Tatyana Kuchina.
