BV Guides and Databases

Private Company Sales Transaction Databases
Free "Visitor Search" allows users to search the DealStats, BIZCOMPS, and FactSet/BVR databases for private company sales transaction data by SIC or NAICS Code using the following codes:
  SIC Code 331 - Steel Works, Blast Furnaces, And Rolling And Finishing Mills
  NAICS Code 331110 - Iron and Steel Mills and Ferroalloy Manufacturing
Types of establishments included in these codes
Sponge iron manufacturers - establishments that use a process called direct reduction to convert iron ore into a metallic iron product without the need for smelting. This process involves heating the iron ore with a reducing agent, such as natural gas or coal, in a reactor at temperatures below the melting point of iron.
Pig iron producers - establishments that produce pig iron, which is the intermediate product produced from smelting iron ore in a blast furnace. The pig iron can be sold in molten or solid form, and is used as a raw material for steel production.
Steel mills - establishments that refine pig iron into steel by removing impurities and adjusting the carbon content. This is done through various methods, including the basic oxygen process, electric arc furnaces, and open-hearth furnaces.
Structural products manufacturing - establishments that manufacture structural products, including bars, plates, rods, sheets, strips, and wires. These products are often used in construction, manufacturing, and other industries.
Pipe and tube mills - establishments that manufacture pipes and tubes using a variety of methods, including welding, extrusion, and casting. These pipes and tubes are used in a range of applications, including construction, transportation, and energy production.
Wire drawing and fabricating mills - establishments that manufacture wire by drawing hot rolled steel wire rods through a series of dies and fabricate wire into various shapes and sizes for use in a range of applications.
Electrometallurgical ferroalloys production - establishments that produce ferroalloys, which are alloys of iron and other metals that are used as raw materials in the production of steel. These include alloys such as ferromanganese, ferrosilicon, and ferrochrome, which are produced through an electrometallurgical process.
