The name in Canadian steel since 1912, Dofasco has been a Hamilton heavyweight for 100 years. But in 2006, the world’s steel conglomerates came calling, and soon a bidding war for Dofasco broke out between Luxembourg-based Arcelor and its German rival, ThyssenKrupp AG. Arcelor, which later became ArcelorMittal after a merger of its own, won out, acquiring Dofasco in a deal worth more than $5.6 billion. Today, though its corporate governors sit across the Atlantic Ocean, Dofasco operates as a standalone subsidiary of ArcelorMittal.
