About Big River Steel a U.S. Steel Company
Big River Steel invested $1.3 Billion to build and start up the world’s first Flex Mill®, a steel mini mill focused on the production of a wide product spectrum, including advanced automotive steels and electrical Steels.

In November of 2020, Big River Steel completed its Phase II expansion, adding a second electric-arc furnace (EAF), and doubling the mill’s capacity for producing steel from 1.65 million tons per year to 3.3 million tons per year.

In January of 2021, BRS became a part of U. S. Steel, creating the first Best of BothSM integrated and mini mill steel company. Together, the two companies are forging a bold path forward to produce transformational steels in ways that are truly Best for AllTM – customers, employees, communities, and the planet.

In June of 2021, Big River Steel announced a $450 million investment to build a non-grain oriented (NGO) electrical steel line. The focus on electrical steel includes working with major automakers in the development of hybrid and electric vehicles. The NGO line is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2023 and create an additional 120 positions at Big River Steel.

But all of this goes far deeper than steelmaking methods. It’s about creating an environment where talented people grow and thrive. It’s about an intensified focus on our customers that guides collaborative, cross-functional teams and drives game-changing solutions. It’s about innovating to lead the way to sustainable steel and using the Best for AllTM strategy to transform the future of steel.
