(PresseBox) - Nucor-Yamato Steel Company (NYS) has selected SMS group (www.sms-group.com) for the replacement and upgrade of rolling equipment at their heavy section mill in Blytheville, Arkansas, USA. NYS is comprised of two rolling facilities commonly referred to as Mill 1 and Mill 2, capable of producing an annual capacity of 2.4 million tons of finished product. SMS group will upgrade Mill 2, which produces large wide flange and H-pile sections.
