Learn more about one of America’s largest domestic steel producers
Founded in 1993, today Steel Dynamics is one of the largest and most diversified domestic steel producers and metals recyclers in the United States, with facilities located throughout the United States and in Mexico. We operate using a circular manufacturing model, producing lower-carbon-emission, quality steel using electric arc furnace technology (EAF) with recycled ferrous scrap as the primary input.
