History of ArcelorMittal Temirtau

The date of establishment of the plant is July 3, 1960, when the first blast furnace produced the first lot of iron.


In 1995 Karaganda Steel Works entered LNM Group (from December 2004 Mittal Steel Company) and was registered as Ispat Karmet. Later some mines of  Karaganda coal basin were added to Ispat Karmet and the Coal Department was established. In December 2004 Ispat karmet was  renamed into Mittal Steel Temirtau due to the change of the brand. With the merger of two world largest steel manufacturers, Arcelor and  Mittal Steel Company in September 2007 Mittal Steel Temirtau was renamed into ArcelorMittal Temirtau. ArcelorMittal Temirtau is the largest full cycle metallurgical plant in Kazakhstan of the capacity 4.5 mio tons of steel a year.
