Today the Kryvyi Rih Cement company owns 122 wagons. Most of the transportation of finished products is carried out with the involvement of hopper-cement wagons of the park of JSC “Ukrzaliznytsia”. The new rolling stock will expand the possibilities and increase the total volume of traffic due to its own transport.

“With the arrival of new wagons, we will be able to provide more than 50% of transportation through our own transport with a total volume of over 31 thousand tons of products per month. I consider our contract with the Kryukov Railcar Building Plant a good example of effective cooperation between two large domestic manufacturers, “said Igor Zavinovsky, Chairman of the Board of Kryvyi Rih Cement JSC.

The new wagons are characterized by a nominal carrying capacity of 74 tons, which is 2 tons more than the rolling stock of JSC Ukrzaliznytsia. All hoppers are equipped with anti-vandal protection, branded and ready to go.

Since 2019, Kryvyi Rih Cement has been owned by the Ukrainian investment company Concorde Capital. Prior to this, the company was part of the German Heidelberg Cement Group. The plant employs about 1000 people.
