Wanting to improve the quality of the alloys Corporation «Rusal» has created a new division in Krasnoyarsk. Foundry Center was founded on the basis of Engineering and Technology Centre Corporation. Specialized corporate center today is a necessity, given the high demands of the global market. Production of «Rusal» is constantly competing with aluminum alloys, manufactured by leading world producers.
If we talk about the activities of the Krasnoyarsk Aluminum Plant, about 30% of aluminum trademark of the total number of products available in the United States. More than 12.5% goes to the EU, 25% is directed to the Asian market. The new division of ITC «Rusal» will focus on improving the quality of produced alloys.

Currently Foundry Center oversees the project implemented at KrAZ for launching foundry industry. It is focused on the production of aluminum billets with diameters ranging from 203 mm to 457 mm. At this stage, agreements on the supply of equipment, design work started. The planned annual capacity of the line is 120 000 tonnes. The main scope of alloys — the automotive industry. According to preliminary calculations, the construction of the new complex will be launched in mid-2015.
