Nucor Building Systems Expands Manufacturing Campus in Swansea, South Carolina

Nucor Building Systems, a leading manufacturer of custom, pre-engineered metal building systems, is growing its existing operations with a $7 million investment that will add 57,000 square feet to its existing facility, 21 miles south of Columbia, in Swansea, South Carolina.

Nucor Building Systems, which provides sophisticated metal building solutions created exclusively for its customers’ unique applications, is projected to create approximately 60 new jobs in Lexington County. All Nucor products are designed by in-house, registered engineers and supported by a network of more than 1,200 authorized builders serving all of North America.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

“This $7 million expansion will add 60 new teammates and 57,000 square feet to our plant, allowing us to meet the growing customer demand for our pre-engineered, custom metal buildings in South Carolina and across the Southeast. This investment shows Nucor’s ongoing and long-term commitment to our customers, to our teammates, the town of Swansea, Lexington County and the state of South Carolina,” said Nucor Building Systems South Carolina General Manager J.J. McCoy.

“The fact that Nucor Building Systems has chosen to expand in South Carolina, continuing to invest in our people, is something for which our state should be proud. This sends a signal to the world that South Carolina remains open for business,” Governor Henry McMaster said.

“Nucor has been a longtime member of Team South Carolina, and we’re excited to watch their ongoing success in Lexington County. Our state’s manufacturing sector continues to thrive, and announcements like this one are further proof of that,” noted Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.

“Nucor’s growth of operations is resounding proof that Lexington County offers favorable economic conditions for all industries. This expansion will be of mutual benefit to both Nucor and the county; we hope to grow because of its impact here and that Nucor continues to flourish as it establishes its future with Lexington County,” Lexington County Council Chairman Debbie Summers said.
