About the facility
Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant is one of the largest manufacturers of steel pipes in Russia, it is part of TMK. The plant was founded in 1942 on the premises of the evacuated Mariupol Pipe Plant.
CHTPZ is rightfully considered a landmark enterprise both for Chelyabinsk region and for the entire pipe industry. The plant produces pipes with a diameter from 89 to 1,422 mm: large-diameter electric welded pipes, including those with an internal smooth-walled coating and an external anticorrosive coating, as well as seamless hot-formed, hot-rolled and cold-bent pipes.

Innovative productions with advanced approaches in the field of technology, organisation of production and culture have been launched at the CHTPZ — Europe's largest workshop to produce large-diameter pipes "Vysota 239" and an enterprise for the production of stamped-welded pipeline parts using nanostructured materials ETERNO. The unusual name of the workshop “Vysota 239” is related to its location – the height of 239 meters above sea level – higher than the height of other pipe rolling plants in the world. ETERNO is translated from Latin as eternity.
