    It is not something I would expect in Russia, indeed.

  2. Airborne says:

    Beautiful, modern place with many touches of creativity and artistry, but it makes since when you remember that pipe means pipelines, and pipelines are a key component of the Russian energy (oil and gas) sector. I suspect that plant also has very good security, as it should.

    There was a post about this plant last year here, the design of the buildings and the terretory of the plant is also very interesting.
    This metalurgical group (CHTPZ) also opened another plant with the same kind of design last year it is called Iron Ozone 32, also very cool.
    The group wanted to go public in the London stock exchange this year, but they wasnt pleased with the price they could have got, so the postponed it for the future.

    Isnt this a repost? Or did I see this elsewhere a few months ago?

  6. Is this where Не хлебом единым would have been filmed if it had been done in color?

    Russia has 3D bar coding, impressive

    “If you guys don’t improve on your quality, this place will go down the tubes!”

  10. Left SR says:

    Do the workers have a pin-up of Piper Perabo in their toolboxes?

  11. Mahmoud A. says:

    Second page, photo # 8, the man in the green coat with his hand on the blondie’s waist is probably fantasizing about laying some pipe.

  12. Gerry says:

    How can I send my CV there?

  13. j s says:

    Those “strange symbols” are actually Data Matrix barcodes printed on the edge of the pipe. They contain a control code, in this case: 0020162000
