The Metallurgy Ukraine 2007 will take place from the 4th to the 7th September in Donetsk, the Ukraine. The largest international trade fair in the region for ironworks and rolling mill technology, thermal processing and foundry practice invites you to get an overview of an extremely interesting market. The Messe Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf Trade Fair Center) together with the local partner specialized exhibition center Expodonbass are organising a metallurgy trade show at one of the most important locations for the industry.
As a rapidly growing segment with vast potential, mining and metallurgy alone represent about 52 percent of the industrial structure in the Ukraine. With almost 2,600 metalworking plants, this sector has developed into one of the most important economic factors. Experts predict a real boom that should last for at least ten years. Numerous ironworks and rolling mills will be modernised in the near future. The demand for sophisticated equipment and expertise will increase at the same time. Ukrainian combines have taken out huge loans for this purpose. In 2006, an estimated 1 billion US dollars were invested in loans granted by international institutes.
The location of the trade fair has not chosen been by chance. The region around Donetsk is one of the leading production centres for metalworking. 51.3 percent of production takes place here alone. Traditionally, there is a large volume of mineral resources (90 different kinds have been counted). The largest metallurgy combine in the country with 71,000 employees can also be found here. Metallurgy therefore belongs to the most important branch of the industry. Production increased by about 2.8-fold from 2001 to 2004. Black metals are primarily processed here (about 79.1 percent) as well as non-ferrous metals (7.6 percent). The remaining areas include pipes (6 percent), steel tube processing (5.6 percent) as well as cast metal (1.7 percent).
The exhibition portfolio of Metallurgy Ukraine 2007 is based upon the very successful Messe-Quartett GIFA/METEC/THERMPROCESS/NEWCAST in Düsseldorf that has already taken place for years and offers equipment and facilities every two years for metallurgical works, ironworks and steelworks, equipment and facilities for the conversion to rolling mills in addition to measuring systems, control equipment and control systems as well as innovations in the sector of thermoprocessing technology and foundry practice. The trade fair targets employees from foundries, the machine ancillary industry for foundries and ironworks, suppliers of raw materials, auxiliary materials and fuel for foundries and ironworks and additionally focuses on the electrical industry and furnace construction industry as well.
A strong will for democratization and dynamic economic development combined with an increasing GDP ensures that the Ukraine is an extremely exciting market for western companies, too. 35.1 percent of the imports came from the 25 EU states in 2005, a figure that is on the increase…
Attractive conditions for international exhibitors
At the Metallurgy Ukraine2007 trade fair, contacts can be made, partnerships established and new horizons conquered. Thanks to the participation of the Federal Republic of Germany or the Austrian Chamber of Commerce with an official joint company stand at the Metallurgy Ukraine 2007 the importance and great significance of the trade fair for the Ukraine is emphasised. Companies from these countries can participate in the trade fair on particularly favourable terms and conditions. Other internationally renowned exhibitors will also be there – participations from the Czech Republic are registered, and suppliers of products from Canada, Switzerland and Turkey will also be participating.
The Ukrainian steel industry is experiencing an outstanding dynamic not least due to intense increases in production in the sector of steel, pig iron and rolling stock. Those who have read the signs of the times know that the increased need for the modernisation and redevelopment of the country offers enormous economic opportunities. Investments amounting to billions will be invested in future. And if you want to offer your products in a market that is rich in opportunities, you are exactly at the right place here.
The opportunities that an extremely interested Ukrainian market offers are seized upon during personal technical discussions at the stand and while demonstrating in-house services on site. The industry that is increasingly passing into private hands is willing and able to adapt to your economic structure and western standards. The products and services required for this can be found, among other things, at the Metallurgy Ukraine in September 2007.
