Hose wire is a strategic kind of products that Wire Shop-2 manufactures. Its quality is approved by many certificates. Many important events were held on for 25 years – international market entries, equipment modernization, output of anniversary tonnes, new products development.
So, since 2010 BMZ mastered the production of steel cord for heavy trucks as part of the import-substituting program. The customers of such products became not only domestic company Belshina, but such foreign companies as Manuli (Italy) and Mitas (Czech Republic). The starting point became the development and adoption of “Quality Assurance System” that was applied then in all BMZ production. This system (1993) was a powerful impulse for further steel cord production development.
As General Director said, the next step was the shipping of steel cord for heavy and beyond heavy tires. The progressive development had never stopped. Thanks to it the Wire Shop-2 has enormous perspectives. In future, the modernization of cable machines will be carried out.
