AM/NS Calvert supplier portal

AM/NS Calvert is a 50/50 joint venture between ArcelorMittal and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp. (NSSMC). The facility takes an active role in managing supply chain relations.

Supply chain management

AM/NS Calvert takes an active role in managing our participation in the supply chain. We believe that by incorporating social, ethical and environmental considerations into our sourcing decisions, we are making a positive contribution to society and the planet, helping make steel more sustainable. That is why ArcelorMittal Group created a code for responsible sourcing in 2010 and we have worked to implement its principles into the standard purchasing form used with our suppliers. 

The AM/NS Calvert procurement team adheres to all global sourcing rules and regulations required by ArcelorMittal Group supply chain practices. This includes adherence to our human rights and anti-corruption policies. Additional focus is concentrated on complying with U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) regulations in dealing with foreign vendors to safeguard trade from terrorists and to maintain the economic health of the U.S. We will continue to thoroughly vet new suppliers and strengthen our current supplier relationships.  

Our primary goal is to produce, provide and continuously improve products that meet customers’ expectations for quality, delivery, cost and technology. As a result, we select only those suppliers who share our commitment to quality and can meet or exceed our requirements to provide superior quality products and services. 

Supplier diversity

We continue to accelerate our efforts in identifying opportunities in our supply chain where it is possible to enable qualified and certified Minority/Women Business Enterprises (MWBEs) to participate in our procurement process. This approach creates a more diverse supplier base, which fosters increased competition and heightens performance.
