Russian Tank Producer Is Interested in Buying Serbian Steel Mill

October 19, 2012

NPO Uralvagonzavod OAO, a Russian state-owned maker of battle tanks and railcars, is the only company to have bought documents in a tender for Serbia’s sole steel plant Zelezara Smederevo d.o.o., the Belgrade-based Privatization Agency said in an e-mailed statement today.

The Serbian government invited bids for Zelezara on Oct. 8, seeking an investor for the unprofitable plant that it bought back from U.S. Steel Corp (X:US) in January.
