Dmitry Markov appointed Managing Director of Seversky Pipe Plant
TMK has appointed Dmitry Markov as Managing Director of TMK’s Seversky Pipe Plant (STZ), replacing Mikhail Zuyev, who has headed STZ since 2009 and is now advisor to the TMK CEO.
Dmitry Markov began his career in the industry at Pervouralsk Pipe Plant (PNTZ), now part of TMK, and worked his way up from assistant supervisor, to chief engineer, to Deputy Executive Director. He also held management positions at Chelpipe Group and Chelpipe-Engineering, later supervising long-term technical development at United Metallurgical Company (OMK). Prior to his latest appointment, he was Director for Operational Excellence at TMK.
Igor Korytko, TMK CEO, said:
“STZ is one of TMK’s key enterprises. During his leadership, Mikhail Zuyev gave the plant a new lease of life, ramping up its production capacity and installing state-of-the-art equipment, making it one of Europe’s most advanced industrial facilities. This has laid the foundation for STZ’s technological development for many years to come, enabling the plant to manufacture innovative tubular solutions designed for extreme environments and allowing our partners to meet high environmental standards. Today, the plant continues to implement the best available technologies and launch new products, while also serving as a testing ground to pilot advanced digital solutions. I am confident that the appointment of Dmitry Markov, who is a highly competent engineer, an Honored Metallurgist, and an experienced manager with extensive technological expertise, will give new impetus to the plant’s consistent growth and help it achieve all the goals we have set for it.”
Part of TMK since 2002, STZ produces up to 1 million tonnes of steel annually and about 900 thousand tonnes of seamless and welded pipe. STZ’s electric arc furnace capacity is enough to meet its own needs and supply continuously cast billet to TMK’s Sinarsky Pipe Plant (SinTZ). The enterprise produces high-tech seamless oil country tubular goods (OCTG) for hydrocarbon production, as well as pipe and tubular products for various kinds of pipeline projects, machine building, construction, and utilities. The plant is a major taxpayer in the Sverdlovsk Region, while also running charitable initiatives, supporting key social infrastructure in Polevskoy, and promoting industrial tourism. It also hosts a unique museum complex, Severskaya Domna, which is a federal-level object of cultural heritage.
