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.
