EVRAZ NTMK Expands Railway Wheels’ Sales Geography
EVRAZ NTMK started railway wheels’ deliveries to Slovakia. In 2018, about 1000 wheels for freight cars will be shipped to ŽOS Trnava railcar repair company.

«Deliveries to railcar repair companies are an important area of our wheels’ sales, as historically, this market segment accounts for over 70% of demand,» says Ilya Shirokobrod, EVRAZ Vice-President, Sales and Logistics. “In addition, expanding sales to Europe strengthens EVRAZ position in this priority market.”
EVRAZ NTMK is one of the world’s top five railway wheel manufacturers. The plant produces wheels for freight and passenger cars as well as locomotives.
