There's an interesting story behind Gerdau's grinding media products. It’s connected to the company's 120-year legacy of making sustainable products.
Gerdau's humble beginning came in 1901 as a nail factory in a small town in southeast Brazil. While the company has evolved over the years, we have preserved our commitment to providing quality products and services and to making positive contributions to the communities where we work and live. Today, the company is a leading global steel producer with operations across North and SouthAmerica.
For over forty years, Gerdau’s grinding ball production facility in Duluth, Minnesota has manufactured forged steel grinding media to serve our mineral processing and mining industry customers in the Americas.
To some, grinding balls are simply tools used to extract mining ores and minerals. But there's so much more behind Gerdau's product.
There's a united team that is proud to work safely to provide customers with the quality products and services they deserve. There's a dedication to making a positive environmental impact.
And there's an economy that we bolster by providing rewarding careers, with good-paying manufacturing jobs and outstanding benefits.
