Nucor Corporation plans to build a third, 120,000 square foot, TrueCore manufacturing facility in Brigham City, Utah. The company plans to create 50 new jobs.
The new facility, expected to be operational in 2022, will manufacture insulated wall and roof panels using state-of-the-art continuous line equipment.
"We are excited to be building our third TrueCore facility in the last three years. Locating in Utah will give us a national footprint and allow us to competitively service our customers in the western U.S. and Canadian markets," said Conor Lowery, Director of Operations at TrueCore.
The State of Utah, Box Elder County and the Box Elder County School Board worked together in support of the project. Contingent upon the approval and finalization of tax incentives the TrueCore facility will join the approximately one dozen facilities operated by Nucor, through its divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates in Utah. The company employs approximately 1,300 employees throughout the state.
"Building this third TrueCore facility will greatly expand our capacity and enhance our ability to service our metal building customers. This new facility will further our strategy of growing our line of value-added products for our customers," said Jeff Carmean, President of Nucor Buildings Group.
In 2019, TrueCore was acquired by Nucor Corporation and is part of the company's Nucor Buildings Group division. TrueCore produces insulated metal panels that are used as exterior walls, interior partitions, ceilings and roofs in the cold storage, commercial and industrial construction markets.
