ArcelorMittal Flat Steel
ArcelorMittal Tubarão was the world’s first steelmaking company to obtain from the UN the Certified Emissions Reduction (CER) and trade carbon credits in the market. Specializing in flat steel, the Company relies on an integrated production unit located in Vitória’s metropolitan region. Its ideal location and logistical infrastructure favor the availability of input and raw materials, as well as the transport of products to the domestic and foreign markets alike. Since it opened in 1983, a ArcelorMittal Tubarão has made continuous investments to expand its installed capacity while refurbishing its processes and equipment. Currently, it has an installed capacity for 7.5 million tons of steel plates per year, 4 million of which are transformed internally into hot coils. The company occupies a leadership position as a preferred supplier of high-quality steel and also as a promoter of sustainable development, having pioneered actions towards improving the life quality of all its stakeholders.
Transforming steel into cold-rolled products and galvanized products makes ArcelorMittal Vega one of the world’s most modern units for transformation of flat steel with innovative solutions to such industries as automotive, appliances, civil construction, tubes and profiles. Modern processes of lamination and galvanization, coupled with the quality of the steel supply by ArcelorMittal Tubarão, ensure the sustainability of its work and its competitiveness in both the domestic and the foreign steelmaking scenario. ArcelorMittal Vega chose São Francisco do Sul, on the Santa Catarina coast, for its industrial operations, especially due to its strategic location, close to car manufacturers in Brazil and in Mercosur. The company can produce 1.4 million tons of flat steel per year.
Unki of Venezuela
In 2009, ArcelorMittal Brazil took an important step towards consolidating its leadership in the Latin American steelmaking market: the acquisition of Venezuela's Unki. This steelmaking company holds 100% of the capital stock in Unicon, Venezuela's biggest tube producer and main supplier for the sectors of oil and gas, manufacturing and construction, both in the country and abroad. Based in Caracas, the company is a huge consumer of hot-rolled coils used to transform steel into tubes. Its location close to the country’s main seaports offers excellent conditions to obtain raw materials and to transport production.
