While SWVA Kentucky LLC is still a relatively new name, our history goes back for a century. Our story begins in the 1920s, at what was once a scrap metal yard. In 1963, we expanded our scrap operation into steelmaking, forming Kentucky Electric Steel.
In 1988, Kentucky Electric Steel went public before being purchased by a private company. In 2018, we were thrilled to become part of the Steel Dynamics family.
