Today we were thrilled to celebrate our official groundbreaking along with state and local officials, members of the community, future customers, investors, suppliers and many other supporters. We would like to thank everyone that came out to share the day with us, especially Governor Mike Beebe and Mayor Dickie Kennemore.
We think John summed it up perfectly, “You see, I have lived here in Mississippi County for the last 30 years. Northeast Arkansas is my home. To have the opportunity to build the world’s most advanced steel mill here – powered not just by technology but by the work ethic of the people of Mississippi County – is for me an experience that is hard to put into words. I am honored to know that my team is bringing good jobs to hard-working people. I am proud to know that our work will support a community where people can live and prosper. Most of all, I am humbled to think that what we are celebrating today will improve the lives of my friends’ and neighbors’ families for generations to come. No man can ask for more than that in his career.”
