Since 2008, ArcelorMittal automotive products have been successfully introduced to Chinese market and have been approved by major car manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Ford, GM, PSA and their Tier 1 supplier network. High strength steels and USIBOR®1500P are increasingly demanded by domestic carmakers as well and contribute to design safer and lighter vehicles.
This product offer now is completed by hot rolled steels for trucks and wheels as well as cold rolled mild steels and HSLA grades available as well from Valin production lines. Dongfeng, Changfeng and other domestic car manufacturers belong to the partners already receiving automotive steel products from Liangang.
As of 2014, VAMA sales organization will also market the automotive steels from ArcelorMittal and Liangang under its own brand.
