Nucor Steel Arkansas to Add Coil Paint Line

Written by Sandy Williams

Nucor Steel says it will add a new coil paint line at its Mississippi County sheet mill in Arkansas. The new coil paint line will have a capacity of 250,000 tons per year and is expected to start up in the first half of 2022.

“The new coil paint line will diversify our product and market mix by adding additional processing capability and will allow us to expand the value-added products we offer. We will be able to compete in new markets, such as roofing and siding, light fixtures and appliances, as well as strengthen our existing market position in HVAC, garage doors and service centers,” said Jay Henderson, Vice President & General Manager of Nucor Steel Arkansas. “This new line will also improve the quality and service we can provide to our pre-paint customers.”

Nucor Steel Arkansas produces approximately 2.6 million tons of hot-rolled sheet steel annually. The new continuous coil coating line will have a thickness range of 0.010 to 0.065 inch and widths of 35 to 72 inches.

Nucor Steel Arkansas recently completed construction of a new specialty cold mill complex and is currently building a new galvanizing line, which will begin operating in 2021.
