This article profiles Steel Dynamics as one of the best managed companies in the U.S. In 1993 Keith Busse was passed over for the top post at Nucor, the country's largest steel producer. Rather than stay put in the number two spot, Busse and two of his colleagues went out on their own, launching Steel Dynamics with bank loans, debt and a $90 million equity investment from companies like GE Capital and Bain Capital.
