ArcelorMittal South Africa

ArcelorMittal South Africa Ltd is the African continent’s largest integrated steel producer. Established in 1928, the company, through its ongoing alignment with international best practices, has been forged into a modern, highly competitive supplier of steel products to the domestic and global markets.

ArcelorMittal South Africa’s core businesses are flat and long steel products. The company has four major South African steel operations in Vanderbijlpark and Saldanha (flat steel products) and in Newcastle and Vereeniging (long steel products)

In addition, the company operates a metallurgical by-products processing division, ArcelorMittal South Africa Coke & Chemicals, formerly known as Suprachem. The division processes ArcelorMittal South Africa’s coke battery by-products and operates two coke batteries in Pretoria and Vanderbijlpark, which are no longer required for the steel making process.

Flat Steel Products

Vanderbijlpark Works is one of the world’s largest inland steel mills and the largest supplier of flat steel products in sub-Saharan Africa. The plant’s steel products are manufactured in an integrated process. Raw materials such as iron ore, coke and dolomite are charged to blast furnaces where they are converted to liquid iron. The liquid iron is refined in basic oxygen furnaces to produce liquid steel. The liquid steel is cast into slabs, which are hot rolled into heavy plate in a plate mill, or into coils in a strip mill. The coils are either sold as hot rolled sheets in coil or processed further into cold rolled and coated products, such as hot dip galvanized, electro galvanised and pre-painted sheet.

The Vanderbijlpark plant produces a range of high-grade products, including:

  • Hot rolled steel coils;
  • Hot rolled steel plate;
  • Cold rolled steel coils;
  • Hot dip galvanized steel coils;
  • Electrolytically galvanised steel coils;
  • Colour coated steel coils; and
