For Viktor Pinchuk, the controlling shareholder of Interpipe, one of Ukraine’s largest industrial groups, the new steel mill he unviled last week is about more than steel. “The art-loving businessman has designed the mill," known as Interpipe Steel, to also serve as an art exhibit, according to a Financial Times report.
Roman Olearchyk writes: “The sun is rising over Ukraine’s once-grey metallurgical industry, literally and figuratively speaking. Ukrainian billionaire Viktor Pinchuk has formally launched operation of the first new steel mill built in Ukraine in 40 years.”
The report continues: "With a $700 million price tag, the Dnipropetrovsk electric arc steel mill is largest greenfield investment in Ukraine since independence in 1991."
