Nucor to build $20 million rebar fabrication site in Davidson County


North Carolina Construction News staff writer

Nucor Rebar Fabrication, a fabricator of concrete reinforcing steel, will spend more than $20 million to build a new rebar fabrication facility in Davidson County.

“It’s great when a home grown company chooses to expand in North Carolina, especially when it’s the largest steelmaker in America,” said Governor Ray Cooper. “Nucor’s decision illustrates its confidence in our state’s workforce, transportation infrastructure, and supportive business environment that makes North Carolina the best state to do business.”

Nucor Rebar Fabrication, an affiliate of Nucor Corporation, is a construction services company that fabricates, installs, and distributes rebar to a variety of infrastructure and building projects. The new rebar fabrication facility in Lexington will be adjacent to the new steel rebar micro mill Nucor is currently building in the city.

“We are excited to be adding a rebar fabrication facility at the site of our new steel mill in Lexington. Nucor has a history of making additional investments in communities where we make steel,” said John Hollatz, executive vice-president of Fabricated Construction Products for Nucor. “With the growth North Carolina and other southeastern states are experiencing, there is a need for additional rebar fabrication in the region to serve infrastructure and nonresidential construction projects.”

A $50,000 performance-based grant was awarded to the project from the One North Carolina Fund.

“In just one year, Nucor has proved their commitment to North Carolina with yet another expansion,” said N.C. Representative Sam Watford. “The City of Lexington remains committed to supporting the company as it establishes its steel and rebar operations in the region.”
