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 three segments that include the Metals Recycling Business (MRB), the Auto Parts Business (APB) and the Steel Manufacturing Business (SMB). MRB buys, collects, processes, recycles, sells and brokers ferrous scrap metal (containing iron) to foreign and domestic steel producers, including SMB, and nonferrous scrap metal (not containing iron) to both foreign and domestic markets. MRB processes mixed pieces of scrap metal into smaller pieces by crushing, sorting, shearing, shredding, and torching, resulting in scrap metal pieces of a size, density and metal content required by customers to meet their production needs. MRB sells both ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal. MRB sells its products to steel mills, foundries and smelters, and is the sole supplier of the ferrous scrap metal required by SMB. MRB competes domestically for the purchase of scrap metal with well-financed recyclers of scrap metal, steel mills that own scrap yards and smaller metal facilities and dealers. APB procures used and salvaged vehicles and sells serviceable used auto parts from these vehicles through its 61 self-service auto parts stores which are located across the U.S. and Western Canada. The remaining portions of the vehicles, autobodies and parts containing ferrous and nonferrous materials such as engines, transmissions, alternators and catalytic converters, are sold to metals recyclers, including MRB where geographically feasible. APB competes for the purchase of vehicles with other auto dismantlers, used car dealers, auto auctions and metal recyclers. In general, the main competitive factors impacting the purchase of vehicles are the price offered by the purchaser and the proximity of the purchaser to the source of the vehicle. SMB operates a steel mini-mill in McMinnville, Oregon that produces finished steel products using recycled metal and other raw materials. MRB is the sole supplier for SMBs scrap metal requirements, which SMB purchases at rates that approximate export market prices for shipments from the West Coast of the U.S. SMB produces semi-finished goods (billets) and finished goods, consisting of rebar, coiled rebar, wire rod, merchant bar and other specialty products. Semi-finished goods are predominantly used for SMBs finished products, but also have been produced for sale to other steel mills. Rebar is produced in either straight length steel bars or coils and used to increase the tensile strength of poured concrete. SMBs primary domestic competitors for the sale of finished steel products include Nucor Corporations manufacturing facilities. In addition to domestic competition, SMB competes with foreign steel producers, principally located in Asia, Canada, Mexico and Central and South America in sh
