The plant is being built by ArcelorMittal Tailored Blanks, which belongs to the industrial empire of Indian magnate Lakšmí Mittal, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote in late June 2012.

The expansion is a result of higher demand for laser-welded blanks for the automotive industry in Slovakia and neighbouring countries. The main customers in this region are PSA Peugeot-Citröen, Volkswagen, Škoda Auto, Ford and Kirchhoff.

ArcelorMittal’s new production facility in Senica is being built in an industrial park on an area of 9,000 square metres.
