Working in collaboration with stakeholders, the company was able to accelerate progress at a number of its plants in Europe and also in Canada.

I want to thank the entire ArcelorMittal Nippon Steel India team for their commitment during Covid, and for supporting the communities around us. Today, our people remain safe, and our business is stronger.”
