TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Nucor Steel Tuscaloosa plans to invest $280 million to support current and future operations at the Tuscaloosa County rolling mill, the Tuscaloosa County Economic Development Authority announced today.
The investment will expand current product lines and add a new product line to Nucor’s steel coil and plate offerings in Tuscaloosa County, where it employs over 400 workers.
The project will enable the mill to produce thinner, stronger, higher-quality plate and a new product line that is not currently manufactured domestically.
“The investment at the rolling mill at Tuscaloosa is important to keep our mill competitive in the global steel industry and open up new market opportunities for our team. said Brian Phillippi, vice president and general manager of Nucor Steel Tuscaloosa. “We appreciate the support we have received from the Tuscaloosa County Economic Development Authority for this project.”
