Nucor Announces Construction of Two New Galvanizing Lines

9/28/2022 - A 500,000-ton-capacity galvanizing line will be constructed at Nucor Steel–Berkeley in South Carolina, with another to be constructed in the western United States, the company announced today.

The new galvanizing line at Nucor Steel–Berkeley, which represents a US$425 million investment, will be able to produce galvanized steel up to 72 inches wide.
 
“These investments support our strategy of shifting our mix to higher margin value-added products and capitalizing on sustainability trends that are driving opportunities for Nucor,” said Leon Topalian, chair, president and chief executive officer of Nucor Corp.
 
“The new Berkeley line will complement our recent galvanizing expansions at our Hickman and Gallatin operations and will be our eighth wholly owned galvanizing line.”
