TMK Shipments Up in Q4

TMK, Russia's largest maker of steel pipes for the energy sector, said fourth-quarter shipments reached 1.04 million tons, up 0.8 percent from the third quarter, thanks to strong growth in its American division.

Product shipments in the division grew 9.9 percent quarter on quarter to 295,000 tons.

TMK also said it expects some growth in shipments this year. "TMK expects a slight increase in total shipments in 2012 over 2011 given the existing agreements with the company's customers and continuation of current market trends," it said.


… 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.
