Did you know that it takes at least 40 floors for a building to be called a "skyscraper"? Today, we have the opportunity to learn more about these extraordinary constructions as skyscrapers are honored with "Skyscraper Day" this Friday, September 3, 2021!
At ArcelorMittal Luxembourg, our employees in Differdange work every day on the production and development of products used for these non-standard buildings around the world. They respond to the new challenges by offering even stronger, innovative beams that allow more environmentally friendly constructions.
ArcelorMittal Differdange is internationally known for the Histar® beams used for the construction of outstanding buildings such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Today, discover the skyscrapers of tomorrow made with our “Made in Luxembourg” steel.
