Steel producer Nucor Corp. acquired Ocala Recycling LLC through its subsidiary The David J. Joseph Co. for an undisclosed amount as part of the company's plan to grow its scrap-processing industry and expansion plans in Florida, Nucor said March 1.

Ocala Recycling, a subsidiary of Blaze Metals LLC, operates four Ocala, Fla., facilities. The four yards, which includes an automobile shredder, totals more than 100,000 tons annually. With the addition of Ocala, DJJ operates a total of 15 automobile shredders throughout its facilities.
