What will the Latest Investment from Nucor Mean for Kentucky?


Nucor Corporation is the largest producer of steel in the entire US, but they’re still growing! Now, they are planning a $164 million investment toward an expansion in Right to Work Ghent, Kentucky. This will allow them to add a tube mill onto one of their sheet mills. We don’t know what all of that means either, but what we can be sure of is the number of jobs it’ll create! This new expansion will create 70 new jobs for people in the area, helping boost the job market and economy!

From Area Development Magazine:

“With our recent investments to expand capacity at Nucor Steel Gallatin and add a galvanizing line, our Gallatin campus is an ideal location to build our new tube mill. […] The new tube mill will allow us to better serve our customers in the construction, infrastructure and renewable energy markets.” […]

“We have found Kentucky to be a great state to grow our business. We would like to thank Governor Beshear, officials with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, and local officials in Gallatin County for their support of this project and our other investments in the state.” […]
