Technical Service

SMS Equipamentos e Servicos Ltda.

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 Vespasiano city, in the Belo Horizonte region. Since then, we have provided hundreds of plants, services, and technical solutions to the South American metallurgical and mining industries.

About us

Portfolio and capabilities

Following the global company policy, we created our local Service Division in 2008. Initially, we provided services in partnership with Brazilian suppliers. Then, in 2012, our booming business led us to open our own workshop exclusively dedicated to services and also located in Vespasiano.

Most of our highly qualified technicians and engineers were trained in other SMS locations such as Germany, the U.S., and China. We specialize in repairing key components for the steel, aluminum, and non ferrous industries. Included here are molds and segments for casters, mandrels, coilers, and complete drive systems for rolling mills and process lines.
