    Breadth Of Products

    We can supply a wider variety of steel products to the automotive industry than just about any other domestic supplier.

    Like our competitors, Nucor produces advanced high strength sheet steel. But unlike those competitors, we also supply SBQ and cold finish products throughout the automobile.

    From drivetrains, frames and suspensions to exposed body panels to high-tech components, Nucor can make steel for just about every part of your vehicle. NuStrength, our family of high performance sheet steels, is a big part of our product diversity.

    Lighter and stronger, but still highly formable, NuStrength steels are designed to help you meet the increasing C.A.F.E. standards.

    Of course, our breadth of product means nothing if we can’t deliver. So you’ll be glad to know that Nucor currently has the highest ratings in North America for reliability, on-time delivery, and financial stability—further proof that in automotive steel, Nucor takes a back seat to no one.

      Engineered steel demands consistency. That’s why, test after test after test, we systematically check all the details, guaranteeing our steel is engineered exactly to your specifications: clean, straight and accurately sized. Nucor will go to the greatest lengths, or the smallest diameter, to ensure your steel is exactly the way you want it.

      Fasteners

      A lot of people were skeptical when Nucor decided to build a world-class fastener facility in the unstable market of the 1980’s. But Nucor Fastener is proof that if you surround yourself with the right people, in the right place, there’s no limit to how far you can take your business and your customers. Whether it’s finished hex nuts, hex head cap screws, hex flange bolts, structural bolts, structural nuts, structural washers, special fasteners, or assemblies, you can count on Nucor for variety and performance.

      Plate / Heat-Treated Plate

      At Nucor, we offer a full range of plate products that can satisfy any project:

      Thicknesses from 3/16″ to 3.0″(2″ Max Heat-Treated)
      Width from 72″ to 124″
      Length from 120″ to 1,030″(600″ Max Heat-Treated)

      And for those tough applications, Nucor offers the high-performance abrasion-resistant NuHeat® steel plate. So whether it’s buckets, blades, dump bodies, crushers, shredders or anything else you need, Nucor has truly stepped up to the plate.
