The centre, which is one of the largest data storage facilities within the UK, consists of a purpose built storage facility to provide an archiving service for company financial, commercial, legal, historical, engineering, technical, occupational health and human resources records.
The benefits of good record management are fundamental to business efficiency. Direct savings can be made through freeing up staff time and the cost of rents, rates, heating and lighting for all space released by having non-concurrent or semi-active archives stored.
The main warehouse is a purpose built storage facility, which has a storage capacity of over 181,000 cu ft (5125m³) which can be used to store a wide variety of archive material.
Our facility has a state of the art fire protection system, high level security and regulated temperature controls to ensure your archives are given the best record management service available.
Whether the records are financial, commercial, technical or personnel, stored as hard copy paper, Data tapes or on CD/DVD the Tata Steel Record Centre can provide you with the safety, security and peace of mind that your data is in safe hands and will be well looked after.
With over 30 years of experience in providing safe and secure record management services, the Tata Steel Record Centre is the ideal place for you to feel comfortable that your archives are in safe hands.
The Tata Steel Record Centre started life in 1972 as a small warehouse with holding space for 10,000 cu ft of archive storage. At the time it was the North West regional record centre for British Steel, one of five regional record centres across the UK, with only a small staff of two. Over the following two decades the record centres activities changed very little, until 1989 when it was re-located to a larger purpose built storage facility on the Shotton site. As other regional record centres closed and re-allocated their archives Shotton record centre became the main centre of records management for the British Steel Corporation, mainly due to its centralised location and large storage facility.
Over the next twenty years a lot has changed for the record centre, Corus was born out of a merger between British Steel and Koninklijke Hoogovens on 7th June 1999 and then later became a subsidiary of Tata Steel on 2nd April 2007, and now from the original five regional record centres only two are left, Shotton and Teesside. Shotton covers the vast majority of the UK.
In 1993 the North East Wales NHS Trust approached Shotton record centre, to help with the storage of various forms of archiving and as such became the record centres first non British Steel/Corus customer. Now the Tata Steel Records Centre is now in a position to expand and utilise it's Records Management service and storage facility to other businesses and organisations by offering piece of mind for the safe storage of their company's documentation.
