Nucor Corporation which employs 24,000 people in the United States and 3,000 in Canada, has begun construction on a new manufacturing facility in Ancaster. The expansion to its Vulcraft Canada Inc. plant in will create 50 new jobs by the end of this year. Nucor’s Vulcraft unit manufactures steel joists and decks. Hamilton’s ready highway access and trained workforce were two reasons for the building decision said Nucor President John Ferriola. The company expects to purchase at least half of the steel it needs in Canada and hopes to be in full production next year.
