We are an integrated ferrous metals company, including the largest iron mining company in Chile and the largest producer of steel in Chile. We export iron pellets and other high – grade iron ore products, primarily to Asia, and we also supply long steel products, mainly to Chilean customers. In addition, we operate in other segments further down the value chain, such as our steel processing group, which manufactures, distributes, rents and sells finished steel and metal products, such as tubes, profiles, tubings, sheets, roofings, claddings and structural and infrastructural elements with innovative solutions and technical expertise. These products are used in multiple industries throughout the region, such as construction, mining, farming and energy. Finally, our business group also operates substantial infrastructure assets, such as a port, a power transmission line and a desalinization plant, which service the shipping and water needs of our own companies, in addition to those of non-related customers.
Our group is organized into four businesses:
Compañía Minera del Pacífico S.A. (CMP), which owns and operates all of its iron ore mines and related processing facilities. It produces high – grade iron ore products, including pellets, pellet feed and sinter feed, in three different valleys of operation in the north of Chile, each one with its own logistics.
Compañía Siderúrgica Huachipato S.A. (CSH), which has its facilities in Talcahuano, Bio Bio region, in the south of Chile. CSH produces pig iron by reduction of ore in blast furnaces; it transforms this pig iron into liquid steel in the steel mill, from which it obtains continuous cast steel billets (semi-finished products), which it then rolls to provide the market with higher value-added products, such as bars for ore grinding, bars for reinforcing concrete and other long products.
CAP Steel Processing Group, which manufactures, distributes, rents and sells steel and metal products. CAP Steel Processing creates value-added solutions for the construction and infrastructure sectors in Chile, Peru and Argentina. The group manufactures and installs specialty steel products and sells its products through a broad distribution channel network, including main retail chains, construction companies, machine workshops and large customers in the mining, industrial, commercial and service sectors.
