MMK beсame a steel supplier for Ford in Russia

Currently, two items of ultralow-carbon steel invarious drawing categories used in the production of car body parts (including the front) for Ford Focus,have been fully accepted. High-duty ultralow-carbon steel for Ford Focus hoods is at the pilot batch approval stage. MMK also expects several items of ultralow-carbon steel for the production of Ford Kuga and Ford Explorer parts to be accepted. Furthermore, MMKy aims to produce and supply the car manufacturer with high-density microalloyed and dual-phase steel both with galvanised coating and as a cold-rolled uncoated product.

MMK and Ford Sollers have been cooperating on automotive sheet production localisation since 2010. This process involves phase-by-phase metal acceptance. During the first phase, the car maker receives special qualification sheets for the metal products it plans to purchase from MMK. These include a full overview of current production of each relevant steel grade including its key specifications and operational statistics. Following approval, Ford then places an order for a small pilot batch, usually of less than five tonnes. Provided the pilot batch receives positive reviews, Ford then places an order for a bigger pilot batch. If this pilot batch is approved, the parties then agree on commercial supplies of accepted metal.
