LTD “SUMY-ELECTRODE” being a subsidiary company of PJSC “Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association” is a leading and traditional manufacturer of special purpose welding electrodes and electrodes of general use in Ukraine.

Until recently, the company was called LTD “FRUNZE-ELECTRODE” as a branch company of the former PJSC “Sumy Frunze Machine-Building Science and Production Association”. At the present time there is taking place reincorporation on change of the name in connection with the Law of Ukraine on judgment of the communist and totalitarian regimes.

History of electrodes production dates back to 1930, when after implementation of the manual arc welding technology, at the plant there was established a workshop producing electrodes using liquid-bath method. Since that time, for welding purposes of the whole manufacturing complex there have been used only own-produced electrodes.

High quality of welding electrodes and their compliance with international standards ensure high efficiency and reliability of the equipment produced by our enterprise, which is used in the most extreme conditions in the chemical, oil and gas industry, in gas pipelines units, in the military-industrial complex, at the nuclear power plants, etc.

Close collaboration with the leading welding research centers and high-skilled professionals of our enterprise allowed us to work out a perfect stable classical technology for producing 175 grades of welding electrodes and 41 grades of welding wire, which are certified according to the certificate of conformity.

Today, our enterprise is equipped with the Swiss equipment of closed technological cycle and our company has a modern laboratory and research facilities which enable to conduct a whole range of research and tests in accordance with the technical documentation for manufacturing products.

The electrode production is certified for quality management system according to DSTU ISO 9001: 2009. We have certificate of "Shipping Register of Ukraine", as well as an authorization for the supply of welding materials to NNGC "Energoatom". "Bureau Veritas" has included our welding electrodes and wire in the main product list of quality system certification of PJSC “Sumy Frunze Machine-Building Science and Production Association” as to ISO 9001: 2008. Our electrodes are packed in carton boxes which are wrapped with vacuum polymer films produced of leading manufacturers. Such packaging significantly increases electrodes shelf life without impairing of their original welding and technological properties. Thus the requirements for storage rooms and transportation are not very strict and one can use electrodes directly from the warehouse without re-calcination. It provides significant advantages especially during assembly work in complex environments, and it considerably improves welding quality.

We are ready to meet and complete any order on manufacturing of welding electrodes, to carry out a full cycle of certification testing, to ensure the goods compliance to all requirements of the technical documentation and to guarantee high quality of our products.

Beside that our company produces electrodes as to the specifications and demands agreed with the customer. Our team is carrying out an independent work on continuous improvement of welding and technological properties of the already developed grades and we are developing new grades which have no analogues.

Today our goods are known and widely used in the leading machine-building, chemical, energy (including nuclear) and other industries in Ukraine and in other countries.

We sincerely hope that the proposed electrodes range, their quality and competitive prices, will ensure long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation with our partners and customers. All the employees of LTD “SUMY-ELECTRODE” will be sincerely glad to see your company among our long-term business partners.
