CHARLOTTE, N.C.  -- Nucor Corporation (NYSE: NUE) announced two acquisitions today on behalf of The David J. Joseph Company (DJJ).  The addition of these new recycling locations, representing a 10% growth in capacity, is consistent with Nucor's growth strategy and demonstrates our commitment to expanding the regional recycling platforms supporting our steel mills.  

On September 30, Advantage Metals Recycling (AMR) completed the purchase of Grossman Iron and Steel located in St. Louis, Missouri.  This acquisition brings AMR's total number of recycling facilities to twelve.
