• The mission of ArcelorMittal Gent

    As a producer of flat carbon steel, we regard safety as our number one priority: safety for all our employees, without making a distinction between our own personnel and contractors working on site.

    Within the business unit Flat Carbon Europe, ArcelorMittal Gent strives towards leadership in the production of high-quality flat steel products in a sustainable entrepreneurial way.

    We are fully aware that this entails great responsibility towards our stakeholders, customers, employees, our immediate surroundings and the environment.

    The steel business remains a basic industry creating products that are essential to the world economy. ArcelorMittal Gent has the advantage of being located at a site where a maritime steel industry is still able to further develop.

    Keeping a heavy industry running in a region with a dense population and vulnerable environment is a challenge ArcelorMittal Gent is willing to undertake at all times.

    By investing in research and development, we are fully committed to reaching top technological performances. Maintaining continuous contact with customers and researching new applications in collaboration with them are key when developing new products and processes.

    The efforts put into research and development are intended to optimise the life cycle of steel, from the extraction of raw material right through to the ultimate recovery and recycling of end products with due respect for the environment.

    In developing human capital, ArcelorMittal Gent applies the principle of subsidiarity. Each employee is encouraged to take ownership of the tasks entrusted to him and to only turn to the hierarchy if this offers genuine added value.

    ArcelorMittal Gent realises that its customers are its reason of existence. In order to ensure profitability, we aim for perfection in our service and product quality. In addition we also do our utmost to build a relationship of trust with our customers.

    The Group’s international character brings new potential for collaboration. Exchanging know-how and merging different cultures in an atmosphere of openness and mutual respect are vital for taking full advantage of this opportunity.
