The world’s leading steelmaker
ArcelorMittal has steelmaking facilities in more than 20 countries, and we are the leader in all the main steel markets
ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel company, with an annual production capacity of around 130 million tonnes. We have operations in more than 60 countries, steelmaking facilities in more than 20 countries, and are the leader in all the main steel markets.
In 2012, we had revenues of US$84.2bn and crude steel production of 88.2 million tonnes, which represents around 6% of world steel output. Around 35% of our steel is produced in the Americas, 47% in Europe and 18% in other regions, including Kazakhstan, South Africa and Ukraine. ArcelorMittal has a leading market position and market share in North and South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the CIS, and Africa.
Our steel divisions and facilities
Our diversified portfolio of products enables us to meet customer requirements across industries. To do this, we rely on our specialised production facilities around the globe.
Our Flat Carbon Americas division produces slabs, hot-rolled coil, cold-rolled coil, coated steel products, tinplate and heavy plate at eight sites across the US, Canada, Mexico and Brazil. These products are sold to all steel-consuming industries including automotive, heavy machinery, pipes and tubes, construction, packaging and appliances.
Flat Carbon Europe produces similar products at 15 sites in six countries and supplies the same markets.
Long Carbon Americas and Europe produces billets, blooms, rebars, wire rod, sections, rails, sheet piles and drawn wire, but is also supplying both seamless and welded tubular products. The main markets for these products are construction and mechanical engineering, as well as energy and automotive applications. Long Carbon Americas has 15 sites in six countries; Long Carbon Europe has 17 integrated and mini-mill sites in nine countries.
AACIS (Asia, Africa and CIS) produces a combination of flat and long products. It has six flat and long production facilities in three countries.
All our facilities are also committed to the capture and re-use of all output materials, including those commonly seen as waste products. Indeed, aligned to our core values of producing safe, sustainable steel, we coordinate sales of by-products from the steelmaking process, such as slag from both integrated and mini-mills in liquid, granulated or ground form; tar and tar distillates; and various dusts collected throughout the different stages of steel production.
Steel plays an essential role in the infrastructure of modern life. Buildings, from bungalows to skyscrapers, depend on steel’s strength and longevity; transport infrastructure such as railways and ships on its resistance to moisture and temperature change; food packaging on its hygienic aspects; and domestic appliances on its versatility and attractive appearance.
Through our research and development (R&D) centres, we are constantly refining our product offerings for industries including construction, automotive, energy, transportation, packaging and domestic appliances. Examples include:
- Nature, a new range of organic coated steels for the construction industry, which do not contain hexavalent chromium or heavy metals;
- S-in motion, a steel concept that produces lighter, safer and more environmentally friendly vehicles for the automotive industry;
- New electrical steels for wind turbines, which maximise the amount of power generated;
- New steel grades for use in thermal power plants with resistance to high temperature and pressure;
- Maleïs®, a ductile steel grade used in food packaging, which makes cans easier to open and allows can-makers to design thinner cylindrical ends;
- Estetic®, a range of coated flat products for specific use in domestic appliances to optimise technical performance.
ArcelorMittal’s steel and steel expertise has also been involved in many unique international projects, such as the ongoing engineering efforts to save Venice from sinking; the design, production and construction of low-cost housing in disadvantaged communities alongside the charity Habitat for Humanity; and the construction of the ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture in London’s Olympic Park.
