On December 13, 1986, ground was broken in Follansbee, West Virginia, for the construction of our first hot-dip coating line - the Aluminizing and Galvanizing Line or AGL. By April 1988, Wheeling-Nisshin commenced operation of the AGL - the first fully computerized, state-of-the-art steel-coating facility in the United States.
In March of 1993 the Continuous Galvanizing Line or CGL was completed. The CGL provided an even more advanced coating line, added Galvalume® to the product offering, and extended Wheeling-Nisshin’s production capacity to 700,000 tons per year - with the AGL at 400,000 tons and the CGL at 300,000 tons.
The CGL is the nation’s first high speed, hot-dip line specializing in light-gauge (tin plate thickness) coated products.
In October 2012, the ZAM® project was launched. This $28 million investment was completed one year later. Wheeling-Nisshin is now the first zinc, aluminum, magnesium (Zn-Al-Mg) alloy producer in the United States - and the only steel producer in North America to produce all five major hot-dip coated products.
Our products are used for a variety of applications such as automotive, appliance, building, and construction.
