Nucor’s Towers & Structures business unit has announced intentions to construct a production facility in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The new plant will be built near the Nucor Steel Crawfordsville steel mill and will create 200 new jobs for the area. The Nucor Towers & Structures business unit was created when the company acquired Summit Utility Structures LLC. According to Nucor, the new Indiana facility will be highly automated, utilizing efficient straight-line production, and will also include hot-dip galvanizing operations.
In a recent quote, Leon Topalian, Chair, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nucor Corporation, said, "With this second utility structure production facility, we are expanding our Towers & Structures business and positioning the Company to meet the growing demand for utility infrastructure from renewable energy projects, EV charging network expansion and grid hardening. As one of the most sustainable steelmakers in the world, we believe energy infrastructure should be built with low embodied carbon American steel."
