Nucor to Upgrade Blytheville Mill


Nucor Corp., Charlotte, N.C., will invest $75 million to add a quench and self-tempering process to the line at its 1.4-million-ton Nucor-Yamato Steel mill in Blytheville, Ark. Upon completion, the process will give NYS the ability to produce ASTM A913 Grade 65 and Grade 70 structural sections with a high-strength, low-alloy grade chemistry that provides excellent weldability while achieving good toughness at low temperatures, Nucor claims. The upgrade is to be commissioned in the second half of 2016. The facility is a joint venture between Nucor and Japan’s Yamato Steel Co.
 
"This strategic investment will keep Nucor-Yamato Steel the market leader in the wide-flange beam market servicing our customers across the United States," says John Ferriola, Nucor chairman and CEO. "The A913 market is a strategic part of the future of our company and will ensure we continue to meet and exceed our customers' needs and requirements."
 
Common applications for the material will include gravity columns for use in high-rise buildings, long-span trusses for projects such as convention centers or stadiums, and for all projects where seismic design is a critical factor. The higher strength achieved from A913 will allow lighter foot weights to be specified, which reduces the overall weight and material cost for the owner, making steel even more competitive versus concrete and wood, Nucor claims.
