DECATUR, Alabama —Nucor Corp. plans to invest approximately $125 million to open an advanced manufacturing facility in Alabama where a new business unit, Nucor Towers & Structures, will produce transmission towers, Governor Kay Ivey announced today.
Nucor, which already has a significant presence in Alabama, has committed to creating 200 full-time jobs at the facility in Decatur. The positions, which have an average annual compensation of $75,000, will be filled over a four-year period.
“Alabama offers world-class companies like Nucor all the advantages they need to find success, including a skilled workforce, a pro-business environment and a solid support system,” Governor Ivey said.
“This investment project is a win for Nucor and Decatur, and for all of Alabama.”
