Arcelormittal

ArcelorMittal Liberia is part of the ArcelorMittal group, the world’s leading steel and mining company and the leader in all major steel markets such as construction, domestic appliances, packaging and automotive. The group has an industrial presence in more than 22 countries spanning four continents, and covers all of the key steel markets, from emerging to mature.

ArcelorMittal has 119 million tons of annual steel production capacity and 245,000 employees across 60 countries.

ArcelorMittal Liberia Ltd. was created in 2006, when a 25-year Mineral Development Agreement (MDA) to mine iron ore was signed between the Government of Liberia and ArcelorMittal.

Our vision

Our core philosophy is to produce safe, sustainable steel. In doing so, our top priority is safety with a goal of being the world’s safest steel and mining company.

As a company, we are committed to our brand promise of ‘transforming tomorrow’. Guiding us in this are our values of sustainability, quality and leadership, each built on a foundation of health and safety. Our brand attitude is boldness – an attribute that is reflected throughout ArcelorMittal Liberia’s history and current operations.

In Liberia, we aim to achieve our production targets through safe mining, and hence, promote Liberia’s growth by observing ArcelorMittal Liberia’s top priorities.

Mining

Our mining business is one of the pillars of ArcelorMittal’s growth strategy. In 2012, our mines worldwide produced 55.9 million tons of iron ore and 8.2 million tons of coal. Our captive iron ore and coal resources provide a certain level of security of supply and shelter from raw material price changes.

ArcelorMittal currently has mining operations in 10 countries: Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Canada, Kazakhstan, Liberia, Mexico, Russia, Ukraine and the U.S.A.

The Liberia operation has a production target of 3 million tons of iron ore during 2016.

Safety

Health and safety is our number one priority and defines everything we do at ArcelorMittal Liberia. Our mantra is ‘Safety first, always’. As part of this belief, each year we join colleagues around the world to celebrate ArcelorMittal’s Health and Safety Day in which all employees and contractors participate. Courageous leadership, the company’s dedicated mining program aimed at raising awareness of the need to speak up when seeing hazardous situations, was also rolled out in Liberia, with all employees and contractors being trained.

But our concern for safety goes beyond our premises. ArcelorMittal Liberia has also initiated an annual road safety awareness campaign to reduce or prevent rail, road and work-related incidents in the surrounding communities.

Ownership

Ownership is our second priority at ArcelorMittal Liberia, after health and safety. We believe that every employee is a stakeholder. Accompanying this, every employee takes ownership of their individual responsibilities in serving and building the company”.

Stakeholders

We respect the diversity and interests of all our stakeholders; we aim to win their full credibility and exceed their expectations by delivering on promises and continuous high quality communication.
