Multimillion-dollar investment

. December 3, 2019.

North Star BlueScope Steel in Delta has made the largest single investment in Fulton County history with a $700 million expansion of its steelmaking operation, increasing the plant’s capacity to 3.3 million tons per year. The expansion has created 90 emerging positions at the company, primarily in the fields of electrical, mechanical, and operational capacities. “Twenty-five years ago, we made a $550 million investment to build in this community. Looking back, it was a great decision for us,” Joe Budion, VP-Finance, said of the expansion. “The community and North Star have supported each other to create the most successful steel mill in North America.”
