2.5 million tons per year — this is the capacity of the rolling mill. Previously, ArcelorMittal produced semi-finished products of metallurgical production — slabs. And now they will be able to launch full-fledged deliveries of hot-rolled goods.
According to the company's analysts, the country's demand for finished rolled products is almost 60% satisfied, thanks to imports. Today Lazaro Cardenas produces about 4 million tons of metal semi-products per year.
According to ArcelorMittal CEO Aditya Mittal, Lazaro Cardenas is developing similarly to the Brazilian division. However, with a difference of 10-15 years. Lazaro Cardenas will grow from the supply of slabs to a full-fledged production of finished metal products and further evolve in other areas.
