On August 1, 2006 Arcelor and Mittal Steel merged to create ArcelorMittal, the world’s leading steel company. The past decade has not always been easy, but the tenth anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate ten years of industry leadership. With a focus on sustainability, quality and leadership as the main values, there is much to be proud of whether it is the improvement in safety, leadership in research, development and innovation – or the multiple buildings, products and other aspects of modern life that ArcelorMittal’s steel makes possible.
Lakshmi N. Mittal, Chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal company: “Ten years ago – in August 2006 – ArcelorMittal was formally created. We became the unique global leader in the steel industry, diversified in both geography and product. Today we are celebrating a decade of industry leadership. This decade has defined the spirit and culture of our company and showcased our resilience, our strength, our knowledge and our capability to respond swiftly. We have reshaped our asset base, we have improved our competitiveness, we have improved our safety performance, we have strengthened our balance sheet and we have invested in innovative products for the future. We have faced tough market conditions, but in many ways we are a stronger company, better positioned for the future with world-class assets and a clear strategy that will enable us to outperform in all market conditions”.
