Newsroom Coordinator

 Nucor will be adding a blast and prime line to the steel plate mill currently being constructed in Brandenburg. The blast and prime line will have an annual capacity of approximately 120,000 tons, and it will allow the Brandenburg facility to offer more products to Nucor’s customers.

 “By adding a blast and prime line to our state-of-the-art plate mill, we will be able to better serve customers in key markets, including our Nation’s military, infrastructure, heavy equipment, offshore wind and other energy products,” said Johnny Jacobs, Vice President and General Manager of Nucor Steel Brandenburg.

 Jacobs says that the facility, which will employ approximately 400 people, is still slated for startup in the fourth quarter of 2022.
