Steel Dynamics Inc. (Nasdaq: STLD) is planning to expand its Butler facility. KPCNews is reporting the Fort Wayne-based company is seeking tax abatement from the DeKalb County Council on an $18.5 million proposal that could add around a dozen jobs.
A council vote on the request could take place early July 2.
The company expects to break ground this summer and complete the project in about one year.
KPCNews says SDI employs more than 600 at the Butler facility.
