Hungarian armor

hungtruckIf you ever get a trivia question on who makes Hungarian truck armor, Nucor CEO Dan DiMicco provided the answer at Friday’s earnings call:
“In the first quarter of 2009, our Decatur, Alabama sheet mill successfully entered the Armor plate market.
“Decatur shipped over 5000 tons of their Armor plate products in the first quarter for the use in the protective structure with the Hungary military vehicle. In addition to military applications our Decatur team sees additional armor plate opportunities in transportation and energy markets. Nucor Steel, Berkeley continues to innovate and introduce new flat roll products for automotive applications.”
