    We all find ourselves in challenging circumstances, within our communities and across our businesses.

    Our number one priority continues to be the safeguarding and care for our employees, our local communities, contractors and, of course, to reduce the impact from the coronavirus outbreak for our customers and suppliers.

    We have reduced production at some of our European mills to match lower demand. We will continue to operate all four blast furnaces across our two steelmaking hubs – in IJmuiden, the Netherlands, and Port Talbot, Wales. However, liquid steel production will be reduced as a consequence of the drop in demand.

    We are monitoring the situation carefully and we stand ready to review these decisions based on market demand in the coming weeks. This is a fast-moving situation and we are working closely with customers and suppliers to mitigate these impacts as far as possible

    Our cross-company coronavirus steering committee, comprising relevant internal experts, continues to meet daily and is coordinating our response to the outbreak. We continue to take a range of proactive steps, based on our business continuity plans, which include:

    • No visitors to our sites and all colleagues working from home as far as possible
    • For our manufacturing colleagues we have further increased resources to increase hygiene and to reduce social contact
    • Increasing capabilities to facilitate working from home across all functions
    • Infection reporting processes in place and monitored daily
    • Scenario planning for changes in demand as part of the business planning processes


    Customers

    For our customers we recognise the dynamic challenge across the entire value chain. Our priority is to find a way through these challenges together so that at the earliest opportunity we can resume the normal fulfillment of demand and work in tandem to re-build our businesses.

    If you are a customer and have questions please do not hesitate to reach out to your Tata Steel in Europe commercial lead. By working together we can support each other as effectively as possible at this challenging time and limit the impact of the outbreak on our teams, mutual value chain and businesses.

    We will update this page with any key updates and changes to our response to the pandemic.
