Tata Steel in Europe was formerly known as Corus, adopting Tata Steel as its new identity in September 2010.
Tata Steel was established in 1907 and the first ingot of steel was made at Jamshedpur in India in 1912.
In 1999, Corus was formed through merger of British Steel and Koninklijke Hoogovens.
Corus joined the Tata Steel family in April 2007 in a transaction that created one of the world’s largest steelmakers, with a major presence in Europe as well as Asia.
