Overview

ArcelorMittal Lazaro Cardenas is Mexico’s largest steel producer and slab exporter. The company is the only dedicated slab producer in the world using the DRI-EAF continuous casting method for its entire production. It uses DRI as its primary metallic input for steelmaking. This process results in higher quality slabs with a uniform grain structure and superior finish – thereby offering more benefits to the end user.

ArcelorMittal Lazaro Cardenas’s unique technology, combined with advanced secondary metallurgy and vacuum degassing facilities, enables it to produce a broad variety of grades of slabs (intermediary products used to manufacture flat rolled steel products) with wide-ranging applications. These include deep drawing grades used in sophisticated applications for the automobile and appliance industries, large diameter line pipe grades used primarily in the petroleum and gas industries, plate grades used in sophisticated applications such as high pressure vessels, corrosion-resistant plates for shipbuilding, as well as structural and commercial grades for the construction industry.

Continuous quality improvements and close technical interaction with end users have allowed ArcelorMittal Lazaro Cardenas to market slabs to top-quality flat rolled and tubular producers worldwide. The commissioning of the latest state-of-the-art DRI Midrex Megamod™ plant in 1997 and subsequent capacity enhancements have lifted ArcelorMittal Lazaro Cardenas’s slab capacity to 3.8 million tons.

ArcelorMittal Lazaro Cardenas’s raw materials and slabs are shipped through a dedicated port facility, which is Mexico’s largest bulk handling port.
