Evraz has invested $131 million in the project and has a 65% stake, while the remainder is held by the Caspian Group Kazakhstan holding company.

The plant was supplied by Siemens SPA.

After the launch of the Kostanay mill, Evraz plans to redirect some of the rebar it had been exporting to Kazakhstan to its domestic Russian market.
