Steel for Life was launched in 2016 and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BCSA, with funding provided by sponsors from the whole steel supply chain.
It manages a market development programme designed to ensure that steel maintains and develops its leading position as the preferred supplier of framing solutions for key sectors of the market, such as multi-storey buildings and single storey industrial buildings.
British Steel Construction Director Richard Farnsworth said: “Steel for Life embodies everything British Steel stands for and we’re delighted to be a Headline Sponsor.
“While we are proud of our heritage, our dedicated and highly-skilled employees are building a stronger future for ourselves and our partners by making and developing the high-quality products our customers rightly expect.
“Central to our strategy is the continued development of our UK-wide network of distribution and metal centres, which put customers’ needs at their heart.
“We look forward to working with our Steel for Life partners to ensure we build a sustainable future for British Steel, our customers and the wider industry.”
Steel for life’s key purpose is to communicate and disseminate the advantages that steel offers to the construction sector, which make it the material of choice for a wide range of buildings, bridges and other structures.
This industry-wide approach provides significant benefits to clients, specifiers and main contractors. By working together as an integrated supply chain for the delivery of steel-framed solutions, the constructional steelwork sector will continue to innovate, educate specifiers and clients, and market the significant benefits of steel in construction.
