In October 2021, Wolfgang Haugg, CEO of the HAUGG Group, was invited to visit the Uzbek company Uzmetkombinat. With over 10,000 employees, the group has specialised in the production of rolled products made of copper alloys. The organisational form and company name “Kombinat” was the common form of company in former socialist states and today roughly means large corporation. As an employer, Uzmetkombinat still offers its employees its own educational, sports and social facilities as well as its own hospital.
The company is also distinguished by its high quality standards: For example, pure copper cathodes are used as raw material and are processed and tested in a modern rolling mill of European design according to the latest standards.
After successful initial sampling of brass strips by Haugg in Germany, an invitation followed to visit the factory and simultaneously accept an initial order before it was delivered. Haugg was the first German delegation to visit the company in Uzbekistan.
Positive first impression
“The tour of the production plant convinced me of the quality, delivery capability and trustworthiness,” Wolfgang Haugg comments on the on-site impression. “The first sample strips have already been approved for purchasing by the quality control department at our plant. I accepted the first delivery of five tonnes of brass strip on site.”
