With 130 million tonnes of annual production capacity and 245,000 employees across 60 countries, ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company.

Our approach

Our core philosophy is to produce safe, sustainable steel. In doing so, our top priority is safety and our goal is to be the world’s safest steel and mining company.


We have steelmaking operations in more than 20 countries on four continents, in both developing and developed steel markets. In 2012, we had revenues of US$84.2 billion 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.


Our mining business is one of the pillars of ArcelorMittal’s growth strategy. In 2012 we produced 55.9 million tonnes of iron ore and 8.2 million tonnes of coal. Our mining business offers substantial scope for profitable expansion, and we have a production target of 84 million tonnes of iron ore by 2015.
We currently have mining operations in 10 countries: Algeria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, Kazakhstan, Liberia, Mexico, Russia, Ukraine and the US. Projects are being developed in: Australia, Mauritania, Mozambique, Senegal and South Africa.
