The Schnee Dust Company, owned by the Schnee family, is one of the largest producers and exporters of Dust in the world of RWBY. Weiss Schnee is the heiress to the Schnee Dust Company, which was founded by her grandfather.

As seen in the "Black" Trailer, the Dust is transported by railway lines after being mined and refined at quarries. According to Blake Belladonna, the company is known for its "controversial labor forces and questionable business partners," implying a bad reputation and/or criminal undertakings. The company has a history of bloodshed with the White Fang. However, the reasons behind this conflict are currently unknown.

It is headquartered in the Kingdom of Atlas and collaborates with the military under General James Ironwood on weapons such as the Atlesian Paladin-290.


The Schnee Dust Company and the Schnee family are at war with the White Fang. Weiss Schnee mentioned that some of her family members and friends have disappeared, while the company board members may have been executed. One instance is mentioned wherein a train car full of Dust was stolen. Due to this conflict and the temper Weiss' father had in regards to it, Weiss experienced a difficult childhood, resulting in her hostility towards the White Fang and distrust of the Faunus in general.

The Schnee Dust Company's controversial labor forces, mentioned by Blake in "The Shining Beacon," are evidently Faunus. In "Black and White," Blake mentions that the White Fang hijack cargo from the companies that use Faunus labor, which is the exact event that took place in the "Black" Trailer. Weiss confirms this in "Mountain Glenn," saying that her father's business practices are no longer progressive in terms of labor rights and Faunus treatment. Upon inheriting the company, she wishes to find a way to change that.
