Built on trust

In the 1960's, Nucor founder Ken Iverson started a small steel company on the idea that teammates, customers and communities could trust one another. Fifty years later, we are America’s largest steel producer. So while a lot has changed, we’d like to think very little has changed when it comes to what makes us who we are.

Integrity / Trust

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.

Open Communication

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.
