Established as Korea’s first stellmaker in 1953, Hyundai Steel has paved the way for sustainable growth by boosting blast furnance business as a new growth engine in additional to its existing electric arc furnance based operation. We will continue to prepare for a greater future with a vision of “Leadind the New Era of Steel”. As a steel mill specialized in automotive materials, Hyundai Steel is heavily engaged in the development of next generation steel for future automotive industry. Since the groundbreaking caremony at the Dangjin integrated steel mill in October 2006, the first and second blast furnances are commissioned in January and November 2010 in order. Then, the completion of blast furnance No.3 in September 2013 enebled us to become a comprehensive global steelmaker with a total crude steel production capacity of 24 million tons including 12 million tons from blast furnances and 12 million tons from electric are furnances. Furthermore, merging with cold rolling division of Hundai Hysco in December 2013, we have now established the one-stop pproduction system integrating all production processes from raw materials to finished products.
Hot-rolled steel plates are rollformed into circular pipes and proceessed into Electric-Resistance Welded pipes according to different specifications (OD, thickness, and material). Although most ERW pipes are circular, some may be processed to be angulated into different shapes including square form. ERW pipes are categorized into ERW type and SAW type depending on the manufacturing method. Our ERW pipes products, the result of our superior knowledge and expertise, have been utilized for multiple purposes, from base materials for construction to infrastructure, thereby contributing to the industrial development of the nation, In particular, they are used extensively in various industries as waste water pipes, city gas pipes, pipes for construction sites, base materials for civil engineering projects, parts for automobiles, and parts for ships.
