INTERPIPE NTRP transforms a number of its personnel service premises and improves labor conditions. After the capital repairs the Company has opened 5 new production premises at the Tube-rolling shop No 4. More than 35 employees start making themselves at home at the new facilities.
These new production premises – “bureaus” – represent individual buildings inside the production shop, hosting work places of foremen, dispatch operators, and shift supervisors, as well as rooms for briefings with shop employees. At present they are very comfortable, well-lighted, neat, and quiet, and they always have comfortable temperature conditions due to operating air conditioners and convector heaters.
The complete overhaul has been made at these new bureaus, including interior and exterior paneling of walls, complete wiring replacement, and installation of air conditioning and sound-proofing systems. All internal premises have been equipped with new furniture, hardware, and machinery and divided into several working zones. New large metal-plastic windows have been installed at the bureaus, enabling the control over the production flow directly from the premises.

Despite the scale and complexity of the task we steadily, step by step, introduce new production culture standards, - INTERPIPE NTRP Executive Manager Vladimir Ovchinnikov has commented. – Our principal objective is to make work places at the mill as comfortable as possible, since this comfort exerts direct influence upon the employees’ loyalty and labor efficiency”.
