Blast furnace no.1 was put into operation in the same year and the first open-hearth steel was casted in 1958. With progressive pace the 2800mm, 950/800mm and 800mm reversion rolling mill were built duuring the next years.
The production of electric steel started relatively soon. In 1981 already the first electric arc furnace was built, lately supplied with continuous caster. In 2004 second 100 ton arc furnace was commissioned. Last open-hearth furnace was shutdown definitely in 2013.
