Who We Are
Nucor is North America’s most diversified and sustainable steel and steel products company. Our team is forged around a vision for leading our industry by providing unparalleled customer care, building trusted partnerships and creating sustained value.
With a firm commitment to our team members, and a variety of benefits and performance incentives, it’s easy to see why Nucor is named one of America’s best employers.
Every Nucor teammate lives and works together by the same core principles.
The fastest way to learn from a mistake is to own it. The surest way to win our customers’ trust is to deliver on our promises. Nucor encourages and rewards both.
We build partnerships based on integrity and trust with every teammate, partner and customer to ensure mutual long-term success.
For us, open communication is less like an ideal and more like a policy. We believe in the value of open and honest communication at all levels of our company.
As a company, we control our fate. As teammates, we control our decisions, our actions and our success. Every Nucor teammate knows their team is depending on them to get the job done.
The steel industry is cyclical; we look at downturns as opportunities to prepare for rebounds. We embrace challenges as a team because negativity is counterproductive.
Nucor revolutionized the steel industry by taking risks and challenging the status quo. From the factory floor to the board room, flexibility is a key to our success.
You can’t go wrong doing the right thing. Here, we treat people like family.
In our early days, we earned a reputation for being the little steel company that could. Today, we remain focused on finding ways to say “yes” to each challenge we face.
At Nucor, believing in a hard day’s work will never be old fashioned. We reward our teammates for their hard work, and they are among the most productive in the industry.
Every ton of steel has a purpose, and our steel is made to last. Our product is the foundation of America’s future – that’s something to be proud of.

Today, Nucor consists of a family of steel and steel products brands represented by more than 300 locations and 25,000 teammates.

Vulcraft is North America’s largest producer and leading innovator of open-web steel joists and joist girders, which are used for building construction. Vulcraft facilities obtain the majority of their steel from Nucor bar mills.
Vulcraft operates nine steel joist fabrication facilities in North America and is part of the Vulcraft/Verco Group of steel products.
Before there was Nucor, there was Vulcraft. In 1962, Nuclear Corporation of America – an American conglomerate – purchased Vulcraft. The venture proved successful and, a few years later, Nuclear built a steel mini mill nearby to provide a reliable source of steel bar for the joist maker. The combined success of both operations – Vulcraft and the mini mill – was the impetus for Nuclear’s subsequent decision to sell its other businesses and focus entirely on the steel business. In 1971, Nuclear Corporation changed its name to Nucor Corporation. Today, Vulcraft – South Carolina and Nucor Steel Darlington are still in operation.
