Nucor Corporation announced a capital investment that will add vacuum degassing to its engineered bar capabilities at its bar mill in Darlington, South Carolina. Adding this capability will enable the mill to produce engineered bar products meeting some of the most stringent quality specifications in the industry. The vacuum degassing system is expected to begin operations in late 2020.

Nucor Steel South Carolina employs more than 450 teammates and produces merchant bar, wire rod, special bar quality and cold headed quality bar.

"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 States and 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.
