Investment in integrated production
We operate integrated production facilities in the Sheffield area of the UK. These cover the entire manufacturing process - from the initial melting of recycled scrap, through rolling, to the inspection and dispatch of the final product.
Steelmaking and Sheffield have a long, historic association. But we recognise that we must continue to invest in our people and processes to keep at the forefront of steel technology and ever more demanding uses for our products. In the early part of the 21st century we have invested more than £20m in:
- two additional vacuum arc re-melting (VAR) furnaces
- a vacuum induction melting (VIM) facility
This ongoing cycle of investment resonates with the original steelmasters of Sheffield and Tata Steel’s heritage.
Dedicated service centres
We employ more than 2,000 people. Our production centres in Sheffield and the West Midlands area of the UK are backed by dedicated service centres in Bolton, UK, Nagpur, India and Suzhou and Xi’an in China.
Our service centres enable us to service our customers’ supply chains with:
