Dear participants of the Eighth International industrial Forum!

It was great pleasure for us to accept the invitation of the organizing committee to participate in the International industrial Forum and all its events again.

Despite the difficult political and economical boundary conditions, SMS group completed in December 2014 the investment program for the service workshop and the technology centre in Chelyabinsk.

The network with the cooperation partners in the Ural Region has also been extended, in particular with South Ural State University for the promotion of university-trained junior staff.

We wish all the participants of Forum and the organizing committee good luck!

Highly respected participants and guests

of the 8th international industrial Forum!

I’m very pleased having the possibility to greet you from the welcome page from the official Forum catalogue!

First of all let me thank from the bottom of my heart the hospitable organisor of this very important event, traditionally taking place in Chelyabinsk.

At the present time we are experiencing the most difficult period not only for the iron and steelmaking but for all industrial branches. The days of rapid economy growth have been passed and we have to adjust to more moderate expectations in the near future.

Nevertheless Russia still remains the country with the biggest population in Europe as well as the biggest exporter of raw materials and energy resources. The potential for industrial development for Russia as the biggest country in the World remains with huge capabilities.

It should be stated that Russia is not facing a crisis but a transition phase which is necessary to overcome to achieve a new level of industrial and economic maturity.

I’m sure the difficult circumstances will encourage searching of the most brilliant and cost-efficient solutions, market niches for new and in-demand products, methods of implementation of energy-saving and environmental technologies which add powerful momentum to renewal, development and prosperity.

On this occasion, I would like to express gratitude for the long-lasting and reliable cooperation to our partners and customers in the Russian Federation. I’d like to invite you having a dialogue, dynamic discussions of our mutual tasks and please share your views and ideas with us.

On behalf of Primetals Technologies Austria I would like to wish you a fruitful work at this International Industrial Forum! In these challenging days we are ready for a close partnership.

Dear ladies and gentlemen!

Subjects of the issues, discussed at the forum, are relevant not only to the regions of Russia, but also to foreign countries. Any metallurgical and machine building production in time needs modernization and introduction of advanced technologies.

Industrial Forum and the accompanying exhibition events are an important tool for the development of business relations, stimulating industrial production, the creation of a favorable investment climate. This is a place for those who come up with innovations, and those who believe in their future. But it is pointless talk about the future if you do not change present, and in this regard, the business program of the forum, which provides discussion of the most acute problems of the industry and the search for their solutions, has attracted considerable interest among the participants.

I am sure that within the forum participants will share professional experience and advanced ideas. And your initiatives will be in demand in practice.

In turn, the South Ural Trade Industrial Bureau, as an effective intermediary between business and government, is ready to render all possible assistance in promoting business initiatives, developed at the forum, and their implementation.

Congratulations to the participants and guests of the Eighth International Industrial Forum with the opening, I wish you all effective discussions, achievement of concrete results, interesting negotiations.

The development of industry is the foundation of the Russian economy, and metallurgy and machine-building are its basic qualities!

The most important conditions for ensuring sustainable growth could be the development of more effective mechanisms of enterprises’ functioning, dynamic modernization of production, strengthening the work on import substitution products.

Consideration of these issues at the congress and exhibition area of Chelyabinsk - Russia's industrial heart - provides an excellent opportunity for event’s participants to exchange views, share experiences and possibilities for solving such problems as increasing the efficiency of production, increase in production capacity, the development of domestic and foreign markets, attracting investment.

Dear participants and guests of the Forum!

Let me welcome you at the Eighth International industrial Forum “Reconstruction of industrial enterprises – breakthrough technologies in metallurgy and machine-building” and at the XVI “Urals Industrial and Economic Week”.

I’m very glad that the Forum has already become the traditional event in the life of the region and has engaged the leading Russian enterprises and foreign countries of the industrial sector in an official capacity.

Metallurgy and machine-building are the foundation of the regional economy, that’s why it is important to concentrate on the new technical decisions, to discover the new points of increase, to introduce innovation technologies and to modernize the main productive assets of enterprises.

On the South Ural the possibilities of the transport logistic extremely expanded with the launch of TLC “Yuzhnouralskiy”.

The subprogramme “Development of industry of Chelyabinsk region for 2016-2018 years” was developed.

Chelyabinsk region is considered to be the region of the realization of ways of industrial sector development on the base of cluster initiatives. Close cooperation ties between the enterprises in industrial cluster lead to the positive synergistic effects; therefore success of one enterprise can’t be separated from the whole success of cluster.

Nowadays in the region cluster initiatives are developed, activity of which is connected with tourism, machine-building, crane-building, tool engineering and nuclear medicine.

This Forum and its specialized exhibitions open up new opportunities for the strengthening of international and interregional closer cooperation.

I wish all the participants of the Forum effective work, proposals of interest, financial solvency and confident decisions!
