Nucor Corporation broke ground on a new steel plate manufacturing mill in Brandenburg Ky., last week.
The 1.5 million-square-foot operation will provide Nucor with 1.2 million tons of annual capacity for steel plate production.
Logistically, Nucor Steel Brandenburg takes advantage of Kentucky’s key geographic location. Access to the Ohio River will allow Nucor to supply the mill with direct-reduced iron and scrap steel by barge.
From the center of the U.S. manufacturing corridor, Nucor Steel Brandenburg will be able to quickly distribute plate products to customers regionally and nationwide.
Nucor is North America’s largest recycler and the nation’s largest steel and steel products producer.
