About Nucor Steel
Nucor and its affiliates are manufacturers of steel products, with operating facilities primarily in the U.S. and Canada. Products produced include: carbon and alloy steel -- in bars, beams, sheet and plate; hollow structural section tubing; electrical conduit; steel piling; steel joists and joist girders; steel deck; fabricated concrete reinforcing steel; cold finished steel; steel fasteners; metal building systems; steel grating; and wire and wire mesh. Nucor, through The David J. Joseph Company, also brokers ferrous and nonferrous metals, pig iron and HBI/DRI; supplies ferro-alloys; and processes ferrous and nonferrous scrap. Nucor is North America's largest recycler.
Within Nucor’s sheet mill group, the Decatur division is unique in that the hot-mill assets were originally built by a joint venture between three other steel companies.  Nucor purchased the hot-mill assets in 2002 and then purchased the cold-mill assets of a local service center in 2004.  In 2009, Nucor Decatur commisioned a state-of-the art galvanizing line.  Total production capacity is currently 2.8M tons per year with approximately half devoted to hot-roll products and the other half sold as cold-roll or zinc-coated, galvanized or galvannealed.  Nucor Decatur offers a wide range of grades in each product, including a variety of low and medium carbon, HSLA, AHSS, and UHSS.
