Nucor Pledges Long-Term Commitment to Lexington

Nucor corporate and local executives pledged to not only create at least 180 jobs by the end of 2025, but also honor the community’s deep manufacturing heritage with a long-term commitment to the plant and community. Nucor is North America’s largest recycler, using scrap steel as its primary raw material.

The plant is being constructed on a 123.66-acre tract at 6776 E. U.S. 64 near Kepley Road off U.S. 64 between I-85 and N.C. 109. With production slated to begin by end of 2024, it is estimated to produce as much as 430,000 tons of rebar a year, which typically is used in the construction of roads, buildings, sidewalks and other structures.
