The steel industry is evolving in Miory District. The investment project to build a metal-rolling plant is one of the largest ever in Vitebsk Oblast. The new metal-rolling plant will produce tinplate sheets that are widely used in many industries: manufacture of packaging for the canning industry, aerosols, paint products, etc. For the time being Belarus purchases this raw material abroad.

The quality of the products will meet the European standards. The construction is slated for completion in 2019. The plant will go through adjusting and startup procedures to reach its designed capacity within the next two years. The plant will create 466 jobs. The total cost of the investment project exceeds €200 million.
