By on
Nucor will add vacuum degassing to its engineered bar capabilities at its mill in Darlington, S.C. The addition will allow the company to produce engineered bar products meeting the most stringent quality-specifications. It is expected to begin operations in late 2020.

"This strategic investment complements our existing bar mills that primarily produce engineered bar products in Norfolk, Nebraska, Memphis, Tennessee, and Wallingford, Connecticut. It will position us to better serve our customers in the Southeastern United Statesand support the growing demand in the region for higher quality automotive and other specialty steel applications," said John Ferriola, chairman, CEO and president of Nucor Corporation.
