The North American branch of Klöckner & Co is partnering with Nucor to process plate at the company’s Brandenburg, Kentucky, facility, learns Kallanish.
Kloeckner Metals will open the new facility in the third quarter of 2023.
Slated to be fully operational by Q4 2022, Nucor’s Brandenburg location includes a state-of-the-art facility electric arc furnace for recycling scrap metal into new heavy plate steel.
“Due to higher prices in the market, we can look back on an outstanding first half-year. At the same time, we have continued implementing our group strategy, laying the foundation for an even more successful Klöckner & Co in the future. We have strengthened our partnership with Nucor in the USA,” says Klöckner ceo, Guido Kerkhoff, in the parent company’s earnings.
Klöckner aims to be a leader in zero-touch production methods. The company uses digital tools to reduce processing speeds and create efficiencies in the supply chain.
