Manchin, Capito Applaud New Jobs In West Virginia
Today, U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Representative David McKinley (R-WV) announced Mason County, West Virginia will be home to Nucor’s new multi-billion dollar steel mill facility. The facility will create thousands of new direct and indirect jobs and will be responsible for significant additional opportunities and investments in the region. Nucor will also make significant philanthropic investments in community organizations in Mason County and the entire state. “Today’s announcement is a wonderful way to start the New Year and truly shows that when you put politics aside and come together, great things happen. Nucor will be making Mason County the new home of their state-of-the-art steel mill that will employ West Virginians in good-paying, long-term jobs. And Nucor is committed to investing time and resources into our state, communities and their workers. The significant investments made through the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act have made West Virginia an even more attractive location to organizations like Nucor and as a result we will continue to attract exciting economic development investments of this magnitude that are transformative for the region and our people. I will continue to work with Nucor, their leadership team and state and federal agencies to help Nucor grow their company here in the Mountain State. I would like to thank Nucor CEO Leon Topalian, the leadership team and the board of directors for choosing West Virginia. I always say that West Virginians are some of the hardest working people you’ll ever meet, and I know our state is ready to prove ourselves to Nucor and the entire steel industry. This announcement shows Nucor truly values our state’s best asset: our people,” said Senator Manchin.
