As the technology provider of the MIDREX® Process we design, build and service Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) plants.

The MIDREX® Process is unsurpassed in the industry in terms of production and process flexibility to meet the constantly evolving nature of steelmakers and ore-based metallics providers. Our goal is to ensure long-term success for our clients and support the entire lifecycle of DR plants.
