POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Plans to start construction of the massive Nucor Steel production facility in Mason County are progressing.
Speaking on MetroNews “Talkline” in recent days, Nucor Vice-President and General Manager John Farris said the company has set up its headquarters temporarily in the old Mason County Armory and continued to lay the ground work for construction.
“We’ve got about 20 people on the team currently and about 80 percent of the equipment is already purchased and we are getting things underway,” he explained.
The groundbreaking is slated to be held later this year or possibly next year. The company is currently going through the permitting process. It has secured all of its state permits. It is still working the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on other permits.
