ArcelorMittal Adds Finishing Line in Quebec

ArcelorMittal’s Long Products Canada has brought on line a new finishing line at its bar mill in Longueuil, Quebec. The $27 million investment will increase the company’s rolling capacity by 100,000 tons to 500,000. Additionally, the company will be able to manufacture new steel products, including angles, for local and international markets.

“Our new finishing line has been built to better respond to the needs of our clients and support the company’s development over the next few years. The project is part of our growth strategy to maximize the profitability of our steel,” says Sujit Sanyal, president and CEO, ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada.

This investment, which maintains some 200 bar mill jobs, is part of ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada’s modernization program, which has seen nearly $300 million invested since 2008. In 2013, ArcelorMittal installed a $24 million heating furnace. This project improved the bar mill’s efficiency while reducing its energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In operation since 1974, the Longueuil plant is one of the cornerstones of the company’s rolling capacity expansion plan between now and 2020, the company claims.

The Longueuil facility manufactures special-grade and merchant bars, rebar and various other semi-finished steel products for customers in Canada, the United States and Mexico. The bar mill is the world’s largest supplier of steel used in leaf springs for light and heavy trucks.
