Big River Steel

In 2017, Big River Steel began operations at its $1.3 billion scrap metal recycling and flat-rolled steel production facility. Big River Steel produces a wide range of flat-rolled steels, including advanced automotive steels and electrical steels. Since operations began, Big River Steel has provided steel to over 225 customers in the automotive, energy, construction and agricultural industries. Based on its early success, Big River Steel began an expansion project in June 2019 to double its capacity.
