The situation is aggravated by the fact that a large part of the planned volume for the current year is the product of technically more complex than a simple cookie cutter «- commented on the management plans VSMPO Dmitry V.
In 2011, the company produced 24.6 thousand. Tons of titanium. Thus, the increase in output volume to a level of 32.7 thousand. Tons will be an increase equal to 33% of last year.
