Service offered to All Customers Wanting to Meet Real Sustainability Goals

Today, Nucor Warehouse Systems announced its new corporate responsibility and sustainability initiative, Closed Loop Sustainability. As the only company offering a true recycling program for rack systems, this program from Nucor Warehouse Systems allows customers to find innovative ways to meet sustainability goals by reducing the need to source new steel. When a warehouse needs to be retrofitted with rack that may be old, out of compliance or damaged, Nucor Warehouse Systems can dismantle and recycle existing rack and then use the material to re-engineer and install a new rack system, keeping all steps of the process under Nucor Corporation as the largest steel manufacturer in North America. 

The Closed Loop Sustainability Process

  • Extract: dismantle existing/old rack
  • Process: melt old rack into raw material
  • Reform: produce stronger, safer rack
  • Install: closing the recycling loop and achieving sustainability

“ProMat is always an event not to miss, and we are looking forward to discussing the Closed Loop Sustainability program amongst our other extensive warehouse solutions with show attendees,” said Reed Reynolds, Commercial Director at Nucor Warehouse Systems. “Over the years, we’ve built the company to be a reliable partner for customers during every step of the warehouse process and we are proud to offer our Closed Loop Sustainability initiative as a part of the largest steel recycler in North America. We are always looking to the future and how we can ensure customers are receiving the highest quality products and services to be one step ahead of the competition.”

This week at ProMat Booth S1068, Nucor Warehouse Systems will have an interactive booth that shows the Closed Loop Sustainability program as well as each of its manufacturing and service capabilities along with representation from other companies within Nucor that can build a warehouse with a single handshake. Whether designing, engineering, manufacturing or building a warehouse from conception to completion, supplying solutions for platforms, AS/RS systems, overhead doors, insulated panels, metal building and more providing a single resource for any warehouse project.
