Mill Contract Sets Investment to Support Nucor Mill

7/15/2019 - Mill services contractor TMS International is building a facility in Sedalia, Mo., USA, to serve Nucor Corp.’s new micro-mill, the company has announced.

“We are thankful to again provide services to Nucor, a premier global steel company,” said Raymond Kalouche, TMS International president and chief executive. 

“TMS has been providing services to Nucor for decades and looks forward to continued growth together.”

Utilizing Danieli technology, the US$250 million Nucor micro-mill will produce rebar for the regional market. The mill is under construction now and is to enter service later this year. TMS said it expects to hire 15 people to help serve the mill.

The new hires will include heavy equipment operators, mechanics and management personnel, the company said.

Both Nucor and TMS said this new contract will advance their existing relationship.

“Nucor has a long history and tradition of building relationships with contractors working on-site. TMS is a wonderful example of this partnership. TMS has locations at several Nucor divisions, and we are excited to have TMS join us in Sedalia,” said Kevin Van de Ven, general manager and vice president of Nucor Steel Sedalia.
