. JSC “Rustavi Metallurgical Plant” is the only regional producer of seamless pipes for the oil and gas industry. It also produces a range of long products for construction and light manufacturing industries. The company started its production in 1950 by performing the first melt of Georgian steel, manufacturing steel, seamless, hot and cold strain tubes. The company’s production had stopped in early 1990s. However, as a result of the investment from the British Investment Company in 2005, the plant has been re-opened and recommenced production of seamless pipes. Presently, the company’s management expects the plant to double its capacity and produce pipes with API standards. We also plan to produce rebar of different diameters and assortment from September 2007.
