Allied Mineral Products Begins Production in Russia
The new Russian facility will initially serve the foundry and aluminum market while seeking future opportunities in industrial applications.
Allied Mineral Products, Inc. recently announced that it has begun manufacturing at its newest international facility in Yelabuga, Russia, located in the Republic of Tatarstan. Russia is the fifth-largest foundry market in castings produced and has the second-largest primary aluminum production in the world. This continued global expansion has given Allied the opportunity to be one of the first Western refractories companies to begin production there.
Allied’s sales in Russia are building on the foundation set by its affiliate in the Netherlands, Allied Mineral Europe, which has been selling product in Russia for 13 years. The new Russian facility will initially serve the foundry and aluminum market while seeking future opportunities in industrial applications.
“Our success could not have been accomplished without a significant amount of time and effort by many people and departments within Allied,” said John Halsted, executive vice president of International & Affiliated Companies at Allied. “We have 18 dedicated employees in Russia and look forward to watching them grow and prosper in the coming years.”
