  • In 1938, the so-called pig iron inquiry proposed that an ironworks should be located in Luleå and in 1940 Norrbottens Järnverk AB, NJA, was founded, with the Swedish government as owner. The proximity to iron ore was one of the basic reasons for the facility in Luleå. NJA was built during the 1950s. In the early 1960s, production and sales improved significantly and NJA was Sweden’s second largest steel producer, with an annual production of 400,000 tonnes, and accounted for 30% of Swedish exports of rolled-steel products. During the 1970s, the prevailing international steel crisis triggered the start of events that led to the founding of SSAB.
  • Between 2000 and 2015, Blast Furnace 3 in Luleå produced 31.5 million tonnes of pig iron (crude iron). That's the weight of a railroad that goes 8 times around the world!
