Nucor Corp. has announced that Nucor-Yamato Steel Co., a joint venture between Nucor and Yamato Kogyo Co. Ltd., has approved a $115 million plan to expand the production of hot-rolled sheet piling. This project at Nucor's steel mill in Blytheville, Ark., is slated for completion in early 2014.
The project will add several new sheet piling sections, increasing the single sheet widths by 22 percent, providing a lighter, stronger sheet.
Nucor and affiliates are manufacturers of steel products, including carbon and alloy steel in bars, beams, sheet, and plate; steel joists and joist girders; steel deck; fabricated concrete reinforcing steel; cold-finished steel; steel fasteners; metal building systems; steel grating and expanded metal; and wire and wire mesh.
