Novolipetsk Forms Divisions

LONDON — Novolipetsk Steel announced Tuesday the creation of new business divisions — NLMK Europe and NLMK USA — following the acquisition of the rolling business of Steel Invest & Finance last month.

The Lipetsk-based steelmaker paid Duferco Group $600 million to gain control of the Steel Invest & Finance venture, which includes seven steel-rolling mills in Europe and the United States.

Novolipetsk Steel also announced the new management structure of its international operations, appointing Horacio Malfatto chief executive of NLMK Europe. Malfatto was chief executive of Steel Invest & Finance.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
