Building Systems

New Millennium Building Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Steel Dynamics, fabricates steel building components for use primarily in low-rise non-residential buildings—including commercial, industrial, and government construction. Its products include joists, girders and trusses, and steel decking.                         New Millennium has the capability to design and produce building support systems to satisfy unique and diverse architectural and structural requirements.

New Millennium serves the domestic construction market from six steel fabrication facilities spanning the continental U.S. Its first plant at Butler, Indiana, began production in 2000. A second plant in Lake City, Florida, started up in 2005. The former John W. Hancock operation in Salem, Virginia, was purchased as a part of SDI’s acquisition of Roanoke Electric in 2006. In 2010 SDI purchased three plants and other assets: Hope, Arkansas; Fallon, Nevada; and Juarez, Mexico. These expand our geographical reach westward.

New Millennium is the nation’s second largest producer. New Millennium, as a low-cost producer having excellent design and service capabilities, is uniquely positioned to grow its business nationally.
