Our company looks back on a long and successful history in Brazil. It all started in the 1970s with the inauguration of our first workshop in Vespasian, Minas Gerais, followed by the establishment of Paul Wurth in Belo Horizonte in 1977. Since then, we have provided hundreds of plants, services, and technical solutions to the South American metallurgical and mining industries.
SMS group Brasil
Since its foundation, SMS group Brasil has successfully completed numerous projects in the field of steel and nonferrous metals, including metallurgical plants such as electric furnaces for steel and ferroalloys, converters, secondary metallurgy plants, continuous casting plants, hot and cold rolling mills, processing lines for long and flat products, and also several projects in the field of forging technology and extrusion presses.
The result of this wide range of experience is highly qualified staff, spread over four locations in Brazil, able to respond quickly to the demands of the local market and offer high-quality products at competitive prices.
Paul Wurth do Brasil
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.
