British Steel showcases £80 million investment programme at wire 

Customers have reacted positively to the £80 million of ‘game-changing’ investments British Steel has announced to the market.

This week our Wire Rod and Processed Wire teams have been at wire in Düsseldorf, the world's most important trade fair for the wire and wire rod industry.

The 5-day event closes tomorrow and among the subjects we've been discussing have been our investments in a new billet caster and enhancements to Scunthorpe Rod Mill and FN Steel.

Phil Knowles, Commercial Director for Wire Rod, said: “wire is a superb opportunity to meet customers and we’re delighted with their reactions to the investments we’re making.

“Being able to manufacture wire rod with tighter tolerance control, improved ovality and world-class surface quality are major benefits to us. The levels of interest in British Steel, and how we’re investing to improve our capabilities, is extremely exciting.”

The combined British Steel and FN Steel team have been demonstrating how our collective offering is helping customers succeed in the global automotive, construction, oil and gas, renewables and general engineering markets.
