Company Profile

ArcelorMittal Dofasco

ArcelorMittal Dofasco

ArcelorMittal Dofasco plays a key role in North America’s advanced manufacturing supply chain working with the top automotive, energy, packaging and construction brands to develop lighter, stronger and more sustainable products – from cans to cars. It is Hamilton’s largest private sector employer with more than 5,000 employees producing 4.5 million net tons of high quality flat carbon steel annually. The company recently completed a significant portfolio of investments in its finishing division including a new state-of-the art galvanizing line, a new temper mill and a revamped line that now produces both Galvanize and Galvalume™ steel, for a total investment of $249M CAD. On the heels of these successful projects, the company has now embarked on a $112M CAD utilities boiler and power generation project, replacing three aged boilers with one modern, high-pressure boiler along with a 20 megawatt topping turbine and water treatment plant. The new boiler will use waste gases from the steelmaking process to produce steam to generate electricity. Slated to be in service in 2019, this project is estimated to result in about 129,000 MWh of annual electricity savings. These investments, coupled with the company’s commitment to continuous improvement, are keeping Hamilton at the forefront of advanced material production in North America.
