About the mill

Producing wide steel plates as thin as 3 mm

Located in Ittre, Belgium, on the outskirts of Walloon Brabant, the Clabecq site produces steel plates of thicknesses ranging from 3 to 120 mm. Specializing in thin plates, the plant offers a product that is renowned for its surface aspect, flatness and tight thickness tolerances. This is the result of impressive expertise combined with unique production equipment, including a reversible quarto mill and a continuous finishing mill with four independent stands on the same line.

Thanks to its recent investments, including an accelerated cooling system and a quenching and tempering unit (Q&T) which has just been commissioned, NLMK Clabecq is well established as a key player in the niche markets of line pipes, abrasion resistant steels (Quard), steels with very high yield strength (Quend), and pressure vessel steels. The plant is close to the port of Antwerp and at the center of a major European motorway network, and distributes its plates to the four corners of the world, with a third of sales destined for locations outside Europe.
