Volkswagen Group appreciates the quality of ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih's rolled steel, which is certificated at international level in line with European requirements this is the background to our supplier choice for the construction of the auto center in Kryvyi Rih.”

Since the end of 2013 we have opened four warehouses (in Kryvyi Rih, Odessa, Kyiv and Ternopil). We'd like to create a quality model of distribution that provides continuous availability of our products in the different regions of Ukraine.”
