ArcelorMittal

ArcelorMittal operates six facilities in three ports in Mexico. With a steel production capacity of more than 6.5 million t/y and employing more than 8,000 individuals, we are the largest employer in Michoacan state and the Lazaro Cardenas municipality. In 2016 ArcelorMittal Mexico produced 3.11 million tons of steel. Mexico has faced significant challenges in sustainable development in recent years, in being a trusted user of air, land and water, finding more ways to use energy efficiently, and ensuring we have the skills to continue to innovate with the next generation. Production from our Volcan mine in Mexico was unfortunately suspended in October 2015 because of the low iron ore price environment. But we expect shipments to increase in 2017 as we have now restarted production, which increases our capacity by 2 million tons.

In 2016, Mexico ranked 10th on the list of copper producers, fifth for zinc, sixth for lead and 13th for steel.
