KFICA Members list
ArcelorMittal is the world’s leading steel and mining company, with a presence in more than 60 countries. It has an industrial presence in more than 20 countries and is the leader in all the main steel markets – from automotive to construction and from household appliances to packaging. The Group has a secure raw material supply chain via its investment in iron ore and coal mining assets. In 2011, ArcelorMittal produced approximately 91.9 million tons of crude steel, 54.1 million tons of iron ore and 8.3 million tons of coal.
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.
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. ArcelorMittal’s pipe plant located in Aktau was commissioned in 2006 and can produce up to 60,000 tons of large diameter spiral-welded steel pipes with coating for oil/gas, water, construction and mining applications. This is the only API-rated pipe-making facility in Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
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 turnover revived the communities across the region and ArcelorMittal has become a magnet for the development of local small and medium businesses.
Presently, ArcelorMittal Temirtau is implementing a comprehensive programme of asset modernization. In 2011, it completed two flagship projects: the overhaul of blast furnace number 2 and the installation of a new billet caster to support the production of long products. The construction of a larger and more efficient oxygen plant and a converter shop gas cleaning system began in 2012. The company is also investing in the continuous improvement of health and safety at all sites, as well as reducing the impact of our operations on the environment.
ArcelorMittal is a member of the Foreign Investors’ Council, playing an active role in encouraging further international investments in Kazakhstan. Having invested close to 3.5 billion USD in Kazakhstan, ArcelorMittal is one of the largest foreign investors in the country and plays a key role in the Government’s Program for Forced Industrial and Innovative Development.
ArcelorMittal’s position in Kazakhstan brings unique opportunities and unique responsibilities. Our future success partly depends on the wider world giving us the freedom and flexibility to succeed. We are committed to building transparent and meaningful relationships with stakeholders in order to contribute to a healthy, sustainable, and prosperous future for all. Our commitment goes beyond steel and extends to securing the health, safety, and well-being of our people, supporting the communities where we operate, and reducing our environmental impact. Over the past five years we have invested close to 275 million USD in various CSR activities, from supporting small community initiatives to implementing large infrastructure projects that improve the standard of living of hundreds of thousands of people.
