An enduring partnership

ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel have a long and successful record of collaboration going back three decades. 

With our strong and tested partnership, we can now bring significant experience, leadership and technology to India’s steel industry.

Our global presence:

I/N Tek and I/N Kote

ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel have operated I/N Tek and I/N Kote in Indiana, US, under joint venture agreements since 1987. I/N Tek and I/N Kote are high-added value downstream steel finishing facilities that serve the automotive and domestic appliance markets.

AM/NS Calvert

More recently, in 2014, ArcelorMittal partnered with Nippon Steel on the acquisition of AM/NS Calvert, a downstream finishing facility in Alabama, US. The facility, which opened in 2010 and has a capacity of 5.3 million tonnes, was the largest newly-constructed steel plant in the US in 40 years. But the plant failed to reach its potential, paving the way for its eventual sale to ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel. A major investment programme followed the acquisition and Calvert is today recognized as one of the most advanced steel finishing facilities in the world.
