Metl-Span®, a Nucor® company, has officially opened its new insulated metal panel manufacturing facility in Brigham City, Utah. This is Metl-Span’s eighth manufacturing facility in the U.S. and Canada. Renowned as North America’s largest steel producer and recycler, Metl-Span’s parent company, Nucor, produces steel by recycling scrap metal in electric arc furnaces to make high-quality steel products, positioning itself as a global leader in sustainable steel manufacturing. 

“The opening of our new insulated panel facility in Utah marks a significant expansion that allows us to better reach and serve our customers in the western United States and Canada,” said Thad Chapman, VP/General Manager, Nucor. “This state-of-the-art facility will greatly enhance our ability to deliver the unparalleled level of service that our customers have come to expect.” 

The new $35 million,127,000 square foot facility will produce Metl-Span’s comprehensive range of insulated wall and roof panels for use in various end markets including warehousing, distribution and data centers. Insulated Metal Panels (IMPs) offer a cost-effective solution for regulating indoor climate conditions, reducing energy consumption for building owners and lessees.

Designed with sustainability in mind, the new facility features cutting-edge energy efficiency thanks to a facade of high-performance IMPs used for walls and roofs from Metl-Span. The panels achieve high insulation values with a foam system that features low global warming potential and zero ozone depletion potential. 

With its headquarters in Lewisville, TX, Nucor’s insulated metal panel team can design, produce and deliver close to 100,000 tons of insulated panel products every year. They service customers across North America with a range of sustainable solutions for all their construction needs.
