Reduce, Reuse, Rebar: Tour of Nucor Steel Mill
Fri, May 10, 2019 from 9:30am - 12pm
NUCOR Steel, founded in 1905 is the largest steel producer and recycler (of any material) in North America. Right in West Seattle a Nucor steel mill is turning out rebar by the ton and although it’s used in almost every construction project in the city most people aren’t aware that this industrial steel is produced in their own backyards.
Join us in “Little Pittsburg” for a tour of NUCOR’s mill and learn about the fiery work of metal processing. We’ll don safety suits and steel ourselves with some tasty donuts before forging onto the manufacturing floor.
