The Puebla steel plant was founded in 1969 by Mexican company Hylsa (Hojalata y Lámina S.A.).[2]

In the late 1950s, Hylsa, which had begun making steel at its San Nicolás de los Garza steel plant near Monterrey in the 1940s, pioneered a new gas-based method for creating direct reduced iron (DRI).[3] The company's groundbreaking DRI technology, known as the HyL process, was soon patented, and the Puebla plant became one of the first in the world to use it commercially.[4]

In 1974, Hylsa became the core member of the newly founded Alfa industrial group.[5] In 2005 the company was sold to the Italian-Argentine conglomerate Techint and incorporated into Techint's new Ternium division.[6]

Today the Ternium Puebla plant specializes in production of long steel products including rebar, wire rod and round bar for the construction, industrial and automotive sectors.[7][8] Recent developments at the plant include the September 2019 installation of a new bag filter system to capture fumes and dust in the electric arc furnace.[7][9]
