US steel manufacturer Nucor Corporation announced that its board of directors had approved the construction of a sheet plant with an annual capacity of 3 million tons.

The new mill will cost approximately US$2.7 billion and can produce 3 million tons of steel per year. In addition, it will be able to produce hot-rolled sheet products through downstream processing, including a tandem cold rolling mill, annealing functions, and two initial galvanizing lines.
Galvanizing capabilities will include an advanced high-end automotive production line with a comprehensive inspection and a construction-grade production line.
