Acciaierie Bertoli Safau acquired the plant from the American company CMC, on May 31, 2012. It had stopped operations due to bad market trends between 2015-16 and restarted production at the end of 2017.[2] In May 2022, ABS announced 200 million euros investment towards upgradation of steel melting process and construction of new rolling mill at ABS Sisak. This expansion will increase production capacity 550 ttpa.[3]
