ArcelorMittal in Kazakhstan

In Kazakhstan, ArcelorMittal transforms locally mined iron ore and coal into high-value flat and long steel products, as well as large diameter pipes.

ArcelorMittal Group is represented by ArcelorMittal Temirtau which operates the integrated steel plant, coal mines and iron ore mines, and by ArcelorMittal Tubular Products Aktau which operates the pipe plant, protective coating line, laboratory and testing complex and pipe yard.

ArcelorMittal Temirtau is the largest producer in Kazakhstan’s steel and mining sector. The integrated steel plant located in Temirtau has an annual capacity of 4 million tons of crude steel and produces hot and cold rolled steel, tin plates, galvanized steel and polymer-coated coils, welded pipes, coke, and chemical by-products. The company also operates 8 coal mines across Karaganda region and 4 iron ore mines in Central and Northern Kazakhstan.

The steel plant commissioned in 1960 became part of ArcelorMittal in 1995. Having overcome considerable difficulties after the acquisition, the company stabilized steel and mining operations and implemented a series of strategic initiatives to upgrade technology, improve health and safety and environmental performance, and ensure long-term competitiveness in the market.

This turnaround revived the communities across the region and ArcelorMittal has become a magnet for the development of local small and medium businesses.
