The service center will be 40% held by Arcelor and will be located close to the Dacia plant that makes the Logan model. "Renault is an Arcelor customer and our policy is to follow our customers in the automotive industry which need high quality steel products.

The steel service center could have an annual production capacity of 300,000 tonnes and will be up and running in the first half of 2007. The number of employees could reach 100, industries sources estimate. Arcelor has been presnt with a representative sales office on the Romanian market since 2004.
