Helping automotive OEMs to meet their geographical and technology challenges through:
Our strategy is built on the following pillars
Quality & Service leadershipArcelorMittal is the leading automotive steel maker with a worldwide presence, delivering a large scale of products, solutions and services to automotive customers with the same high quality focus in all regions.
New automotive products and solutions – 2017 and beyond
Across the world, ArcelorMittal offers the most advanced automotive steels. These are essential to address the emission/weight saving and passenger safety challenges. Meeting the fuel economy targets for the OEMs in Europe and NAFTA will require development and delivery of a new generation of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS).
Geographical expansion in emerging markets
As part of our global leadership position in automotive steel, ArcelorMittal is committed to continuous investment in innovation and production facilities across the globe as well as expansion projects into new and emerging markets. For example with VAMA, the joint venture between ArcelorMittal and Valin steel, we are building a state-of-the-art automotive steel production facility in China.
Downstream capabilities relying on strong partnerships
ArcelorMittal has a highly competitive quality, delivery, and customer service, supported by downstream capabilities that enable a solutions-based selling approach. For example with our Tailored Blanks network we are able to promote our Usibor® solutions with patented welding technology.
Long products integration
Long Carbon has invested heavily in Warszawa, Duisburg & Gandrange to dedicate these assets to the supply of our Automotive & Truck customers.
Supported by Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Full life cycle analysis favours steel over other materials. Awareness is increasing with carmakers and regulators, and efforts are ongoing to convince everybody that reducing emissions from the automotive sector requires a full picture of the emissions produced during all phases of the material’s life. Only through accurate LCA can the true environmental benefits of steel become clear.
We are protecting and growing our automotive business which is a key franchise for ArcelorMittal, based on technological leadership and a global footprint.
