Pig iron

Stena Metal Inc. trades in basic pig iron for steelmaking, as well as foundry and ductile pig iron for the castings industry. Most of our supply is from Brazil, which is the largest exporter of pig iron worldwide, with more than 4 million tons of exports annually. For the past 10 years, Stena has consistently been among the leading exporters of pig iron from Brazil. In the past few years, we have supplemented Brazilian material with pig iron from other growing exporters, most notably, Russia and India.
