A meeting of our management with representatives of the Russian branch of the Swedish Company SSAB was held in the central office of SkyWay Technologies Co. SSAB is the official supplier of high-strength steel profiles for the construction of the SkyWay track structure. The Head of representative office in the Russian Federation and CIS, as well as the representative of this Company in Belarus attended the meeting. Despite the fact that cooperation with the Swedish Company lasts for more than a year and a half, the meeting with top officials of the Company took place for the first time.
The talks had the purpose to increase areas and scope of cooperation, reduce materials delivery time, processing period on technical consultations and ensure more timely feedback to the manufacturer. An important point of the talks was the discussion of details of a 15 km Skyway high-speed route construction with the use of our partner’s materials. The construction is scheduled for 2017.
The Swedish side is interested in expanding cooperation with our Company and, therefore, suggested the Skyway Technologies Co. to take part in the annual contest “Swedish Steel Prize”, which is held under the auspices of SSAB for innovative projects, in which materials of this Swedish Company were used. Given the fact that EcoTechnoPark construction is an ambitious project, SkyWay has a high chance to win and that would undoubtedly increase the international prestige of our Company and ensure new growth opportunities.
Note: the steel Company SSAB is one of the oldest steel companies operating in more than 50 countries. Its number of employees exceeds 16 thousand people. Products manufactured by SSAB have no analogues in the CIS and the Russian Federation.
“Swedish Steel Prize” is the most prestigious award in steel industry, the purpose of which is to motivate and spread knowledge on the creation of more lightweight, safe and environmentally friendly high-strength steel products.
