British Steel has opened a new metal centre facility at its Scunthorpe headquarters to supply a wide range of constructional steel products and services to businesses of all sizes.
The new Scunthorpe Metal Centre, which replaces a smaller facility on the outskirts of the town, has created 10 jobs and is said to have further strengthened British Steel’s nationwide network of metal and service centres.
Richard Farnsworth, British Steel’s Managing Director Construction, said: “Our new metal centre is an exciting development, not only for us but for the region’s construction industry.
“Moving to bigger facilities allows us to offer customers an extended range of steel products including our UK manufactured structural sections with next day delivery as standard. We’ll also have further processing facilities including cutting to length so we can tailor our products to customers’ precise requirements.
“We want to become the supplier of choice to this region’s construction industry and believe our new Scunthorpe Metal Centre, supported by our facility in Hull, will help us lead business and community re-development throughout the Yorkshire and Humber area.”
