About Gerdau

The men and women in the steel industry make a transformative impact on society. They create and build with steel. They connect the world through bridges and cars, move people on elevators and across railroads, construct homes that protect families, and erect structures that revitalize landscapes. At Gerdau, we empower people who build the future.

Gerdau’s North American business divisions manufacture long and special steel products for the agriculture, energy, industrial, automotive and manufacturing markets. We stimulate the economy through our network of recycling operations and mills, operating ten mills in the U.S. and three in Canada. Our mills utilize efficient and clean production practices, including the use of electric arc furnace (EAF) technology. This makes our steel one of the greenest choices available.

Gerdau is the largest Brazilian steel producer and one of the leading suppliers of long steel in the Americas and specialty steel in the world. In Brazil, it also produces flat steel and iron ore, activities that broaden the product mix offered to the market and the competitiveness of its operations.

In addition, it is the largest recycler in Latin America and annually transforms millions of tons of scrap into steel, reinforcing its commitment to the sustainable development of the regions where it operates. Gerdau shares are listed on the Sao Paulo (B3), New York (NYSE) and Madrid (Latibex) stock exchanges.


Mechanical Engineering Intern

June 2020 Midlothian, TX
“I really liked the experience and knowledge that I gained. Real world experience has completely changed my perspective on the mechanical engineering industry. Visually seeing what I learned in school for the past 4 years, and seeing it applied in the work place was extremely astounding. I was able to create my own designs and work with the fabricators to get it built and applied. I learned the process of designing, and creating prototypes that change through tests, which will be very beneficial for me moving forward in my career.”
