Paul Wurth do Brasil, the Brazilian branch of the Luxembourg group, was set up in Belo Horizonte in July 1977. The decision to open a local company was motivated by Belgo Mineira’s project to build the new blast furnace 5 at their João Monlevade plant in Minas Gerais. Paul Wurth was part of the consortium aiming to accomplish this large-scale project commissioned in 1980.
Paul Wurth do Brasil is renowned not only in Brazil, but also within the South American steel and nonferrous market, as a company that offers high-quality equipment and cutting-edge technology.
What we value the most is being appreciated for the outstanding and long-standing relationship of trust with our employees, customers, suppliers, and partners. Our company’s success story has only been possible because Paul Wurth do Brasil has continuously counted on an extremely competent, multidisciplinary, and highly committed team. Not to mention the valuable support provided over the years by the entire Paul Wurth Group throughout its competence centres worldwide.
