ArcelorMittal Europe has a long and rich tradition of producing bars and wire rod in its locations in Germany, France, Spain, Poland, the Czech Republic, Bosnia Herzegovina and Morocco. These plants are at the forefront of technical innovation and provide best-in-class customer service. They offer a wide spectrum of wire rod as well as SBQ and forging billet, products covering the full range of final applications.
In recent years, our European plants have made major investments in state-of-the-art equipment: a new bar mill and new SBQ finishing capacities in Warsaw, a new wire rod mill and updated billet/bloom casters in Duisburg, a new finishing line in Gandrange, a rebar in coil production line in Zenica and a new vacuum degassing station and round CC caster in Ostrava. Furthermore, the wire rod rolling mills of Sosnowiec, Hamburg and Veriña are upgraded.
