Nucor Expands Fabrication Facility to Canada

Written by Sandy Williams

Nucor Corp. announced today that it will expand its Vulcraft/Verco Group into Canada. The new production facility, Vulcraft Canada, Inc., will be located near Hamilton, Ontario and will serve the Central and Eastern markets. The facility will produce steel joists, joist girders, and decking. Product fabrication is expected to begin later this year.

“We are excited to expand our production into Canada as part of our long-term commitment to serving our customers in this market,” said Ray Napolitan, Executive Vice President, Fabricated Construction Products. “We already have valuable partnerships with many Canadian customers, and we look forward to building on those relationships and growing this business well into the future.”

Vulcraft Canada, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nucor Corporation. Nucor’s start in the steel business began when it purchased the Vulcraft Corporation, a South Carolina maker of steel joists and joist girders. Today, the Vulcraft/Verco Group has 10 facilities in the United States and is the nation’s largest producer of steel joists and deck.
