MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - A steel corporation announced a multi-million dollar plan to build a galvanizing line in Arkansas.

Nucor issued a news release about the new line at the company's sheet mill on Friday.

The move is to "support Nucor's growth into a wider and more diverse set of strategic end-market applications," according to the release.

The new galvanizing line is a $240 million investment for the company with an annual capacity of about 500,000 tons.

Nucor states this project complements the $230 million investment currently underway to construct a specialty cold mill complex at their plant in Mississippi County.
