Nucor-Yamato Steel to expand hot rolled sheet piling production

Nucor Corporation communicated that Nucor-Yamato Steel Company, a joint venture between Nucor and Yamato Kogyo Co. Ltd., has approved a $115 million plan to expand the production of hot rolled sheet piling. This project will be completed at Nucor’s steel mill in Blytheville, Arkansas, and is expected to be completed in early 2014.

Upon completion, the project will add several new sheet piling sections, increasing the single sheet widths by 22 percent and providing a lighter, stronger sheet covering more area at a lower installed cost.
