Russian steel giant Severstal has been selected as a supplier of galvanized metal for the production of cabs of new generation trucks manufactured at Daimler KAMAZ Rus. The first tests were conducted in 2016. To do this, samples were sent to the client's laboratory. Experts studied the properties of the material and gave a positive conclusion. Additional testing of rolled properties was continued in 2018, and in 2019 the final answer was received that the rolled metal fully complies with the high quality standards of the parent company Daimler AG. Galvanized metal will be produced at the Cherepovets Metallurgical Combine, using all modern methods of quality control and digital technology industry 4.0.

Currently, KAMAZ projects supply metal products made of high-strength steel grades for the manufacture of side members (S500MC - S600MC) and are still undergoing experimental tests of a two-phase ferritic-martensitic hot-rolled pickled steel of enhanced strength of the DP600 brand. The ratio of high strength and low yield, high strain hardening and the level of energy absorption of the collision make it possible to effectively use it for the manufacture of car parts using cold stamping.

Also from April 2019, a consignment warehouse for storage of Cherepovets metal began to work at the industrial site of KAMAZ, which allows the car company to be more flexible in changing the model range produced.
