Nucor announced that its new $400 million steel rebar mill in Sedalia, Missouri is set to open in November 2019.

Nucor Sedalia general manager Kevin Vandeven said in a local radio interview that the plant aims to “strike an arc” in November after a “challenging winter” finalizing construction.

The plant has already hired about 120 employees to fill three shifts, and there are plans to bring on a fourth shift in the future, Vendeven said, adding that the employees are being trained at Nucor mills in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois and Utah.

Nucor previously said the Sedalia location allows them to “take advantage of the abundant scrap supply in the immediate area.”

Nucor first announced plans for the new plant in November 2017.
