Schnitzer Steel Industries Inc is a recycler of ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal including end-of-life vehicles and a manufacturer of finished steel products.

Schnitzer Steel Industries Inc was founded in 1906 as an Oregon Corporation. It is a recycler of ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal, a recycler of used and salvaged vehicles and a manufacturer of finished steel products. The Company operates in two operating and reportable segments: the Auto and Metals Recycling (AMR) business and the Steel Manufacturing Business (SMB). AMR collects and recycles autobodies, rail cars, home appliances, industrial machinery, manufacturing scrap and construction and demolition scrap from bridges, buildings and other infrastructure. It sources material through regional supply chains that collect scrap from large and small businesses and individuals. Its largest source of autobodies is its own network of around 52 self-service auto parts stores, which operate under the commercial brand-name Pick-n-Pull, a majority of which are located in close geographic proximity to its metals recycling operating facilities, close to six of which have large-scale shredders. AMR processes recycled metals ranging from iron and steel to aluminum, copper, lead, stainless steel and zinc for use in the manufacture of new products. SMB produces finished steel products such as rebar, wire rod, coiled rebar, merchant bar and other specialty products using nearly 100% recycled metal sourced from AMR. SMB's products are primarily used in nonresidential and infrastructure construction in North America. The Company's operations are subject to local, state and federal environmental protection, health, safety and transportation laws and regulations.
