  • ArcelorMittal Gijón

ArcelorMittal Gijón plant is located in the Asturias region in north-west Spain in a strategic location with port services close to the factory.

The Gijón site consists of a steel plant with two oxygen converters, secondary metallurgy (including two ladle furnaces and an RH degasser), a bloom caster and a billet caster, as well as a wire rod mill and a rail mill.

The site produces high quality wire rod for the most demanding applications (steelcord, cold heading applications, springs for shock absorbers, etc.).

Gijón is the only Spanish producer of high-speed rail and head hardened rail. Both products are subject to the most stringent quality and reliability requirements.
