Nucor to Add Paint Line to Arkansas Mill

12/19/2019 - Nucor Corp.’s board of directors has greenlighted installation of a new coil paint line at its Arkansas sheet mill, an addition that will allow it to compete in new markets. 

In a statement, Nucor said the new line will have an annual capacity of 250,000 tons and is to enter service in the first half of 2022. 

"The new coil paint line will diversify our product and market mix by adding additional processing capability and will allow us to expand the value-added products we offer. We will be able to compete in new markets, such as roofing and siding, light fixtures and appliances, as well as strengthen our existing market position in HVAC, garage doors and service centers," said Jay Henderson, vice president and general manager of Nucor Steel-Arkansas. 

"This new line will also improve the quality and service we can provide to our pre-paint customers," he added.
