Other information: Altos Hornos de México was constituted in July 1942 as a company with state and private capital. Equipment was acquired in the USA, including a blast furnace that had been abandoned in Saint Louis, Missouri. The first machinery arrived in Monclova in April 1942 and works construction began in October. Supply of iron ore was secured through an agreement with Fundidora Monterrey, and supplied from the Cerro de Mercado mine in Durango. Blast Furnace #1, called 'Guadalupe, was ignited in 1944, marking the official start of AHMSA's operations.
