"There’s really no reason to leave Oak Creek. The location’s fantastic. The community’s a great place to work.” - Nick Schultz, Sales Manager
Nucor Cold Finish Wisconsin in Oak Creek is a part of Nucor Corporation – the largest producer of steel products in North America. Nick Schultz, Sales Manager at Nucor, says that Oak Creek’s location is fantastic for businesses because of its close proximity to Chicago, downtown Milwaukee, and Milwaukee General Mitchell Airport. Like many Oak Creek businesses, Nucor cherishes its relationship with the city and its community. Some of the company’s “teammates” are even Oak Creek natives. In return for Oak Creek’s unwavering support, Nucor strives to be community stewards and is involved in several volunteer initiatives in the area.
Nucor’s Oak Creek location specializes in cold drawn steel, which involves pulling a steel bar through a special die, both strengthening and lengthening the bar. This process gives the product characteristics that are desirable to manufacturers who then use the steel to make consumer and industrial goods. With I-94 minutes away, Oak Creek provides the perfect location for the dozens of product-filled semi-trucks driving to and from Nucor’s steel plant each and every day.
