Our goal is to ensure long-term success for our clients and to support the entire plant lifecycle through a two-way technology sharing program and strategic partnerships with leading companies in their specialty fields. From plant start-up and commissioning, the support of clients continues through our services and aftermarket group, known as Midrex Global Solutions.
We are a global company, with headquarters and research and technology development center located in Charlotte, NC, USA, and offices in the United Kingdom, China, India, and Dubai.

Our relationship with clients goes far beyond developing projects and supplying technology solutions.
Our involvement begins even before the contract stage, as we find the right solution specific for each client rather than making one generic technology fit.
