Nucor Corporation, currently the largest domestic steel producer and recycler in North America, has been ranked No. 1 in its industry in Fortune Magazine‘s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in its industry.
The list is a major authority on corporate reputations compiled each year by Fortune and Korn Ferry through a survey of almost 4,000 executives, directors, and securities analysts.
Nucor and its affiliates are manufacturers of one of the broadest ranges of steel and steel products — including steel fasteners, racking, castings, conduits, and more — with operating facilities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
“Every single day, our nearly 29,000 team members remain focused on our company’s mission to grow our core steelmaking capabilities while expanding our presence into related businesses that fit with our culture and leverage our strengths,” said Leon Topalian, president and CEO of Nucor Corporation. “2021 was the safest year in our history, and I commend the team for their daily commitment to keeping each other safe.”
Last year, Nucor launched Econiq, the world’s first family of net-zero carbon steel products at scale to better support its customers in meeting sustainability goals.
More recently, the company announced another successful acquisition, with a majority ownership position in California Steel Industries (CSI). CSI is a flat-rolled steel converter with the capability to produce more than two million tons of finished steel and steel products annually. Key end-use segments served by CSI include customers in the construction, service center and energy industries.
“It’s been quite a year for Nucor, and we are excited to see outlets like Fortune Magazine recognize what we know to be true — the Nucor culture is extraordinary,” added Topalian.
