The Board of Directors of Duferdofin-Nucor, a 50:50 joint venture between the international group Duferco and Nucor Corporation, approved an investment for the construction of a new rolling mill in Italy to be located at the San Zeno Naviglio in the province of Brescia, in northern Italy facility. This investment of over 150 million euros will integrate the operations of Duferdofin-Nucor and allow steel produced by the melt shop in San Zeno Naviglio (BS) to supply the new rolling mill. The new mill, strategically located in northern Italy, will be designed to produce beams and other rolled products and will be a low-cost producer in Europe. The plant will benefit from the most modern technologies, will have limited environmental impact with significant energy savings, and will consume energy from renewable sources through a long-term Power Purchase Agreement. With the new plant, the entire Duferdofin-Nucor production system will produce over 1 million tons of rolled products.

The new mill, for which the authorization process has already begun, is expected to be fully operational by mid-2022 and will create approximately 150 full-time jobs in San Zeno Naviglio (BS).

The existing mills located in Pallanzeno (VB, Piedmont) and Giammoro (ME, Sicily) will be focused on producing special profiles and serving the Mediterranean markets.

The Chairman of Duferdofin-Nucor Antonio Gozzi said “This investment is the culmination of a long process of continuous improvements which all Duferdofin-Nucor teammates have been committed to making. Our goal is to make Duferdofin-Nucor even better, more profitable and more sustainable in the interest of all stakeholders. I am grateful to our partner Nucor Corporation for their support of this project. All of us at Duferco appreciate their support.”
