Founded in 1942, Acindar Industria Argentina de Aceros S.A. is one of Argentina's oldest steel companies.[1] Its headquarters and steel plant are located in the city of Villa Constitución.[2] Acindar merged with Arcelor subsidiary Belgo Mineira in 2001[3] and became part of the newly formed ArcelorMittal Group in 2006[4]. Since 2008 ArcelorMittal has controlled 99.5% of the company.[5]

Acindar produces bars and balls for the grinding of minerals; steel meshes for the mining industry; wires, turnbuckles and special posts for the wine industry; poles, rods, wires and accessories for agricultural fencing; and a variety of products for the construction, oil, and metallurgical industries. Acindar also offers technical advisory services, along with cutting, bending and pre-assembling of steel parts according to the client's technical specifications.[6]

The Acindar complex includes a DRI (direct reduced iron) plant featuring Midrex technology installed in 1978[7], and two Tenova electric arc furnaces installed in 2007[8].
