OMK Announces Appointment of New Trubodetal Managing Director

The United Metallurgical Company (AO OMK, Moscow) announces the appointment of Evgeny Baranov as managing director of the Trubodetal facility. He replaces Dmitri Markov that had been managing the facility since July 2015.

Under Dmitri Markov's leadership, the Trubodetal team completed a number of large projects to manufacture fittings and assemblies for main pipelines and energy-sector installations and started making modular oilfield construction equipment.

Newly appointed Managing Director Evgeny Baranov used to manage the large-diameter pipe business unit at Vyksa Steel Works (AO VSW, Vyksa, Nizhniy Novgorod Region, an OMK company). VSW's large-diameter pipe business unit is the driver behind the growth of OMK as a major domestic supplier of large-diameter pipe for on- and off-shore main pipelines.

“Evgeny Baranov has accumulated a wealth of experience managing one of the Company’s most important assets. This experience will be fully engaged in assuring further Trubodetal growth. The OMK Governance Board has set the new managing director some serious objectives having to do with upgrades, improved production efficiency and reduced time to market for new product to offer the best solutions in the form of unique pipeline fittings to the domestic energy sector. Dmitri Markov will continue at OMK as Deputy Director of Strategic Technical Development Center. His experience will add considerably to the implementation of the Company’s large-scale investment program”, noted OMK Governance Board Chair Natalya Eremina.
