British Steel wire rod business wins export award

British Steel's wire rod business has won the Export Business of the Year Award in the Yorkshire and the Humber heats of the Chamber Business Awards for 2018.

Now in their 15th year, the Awards are a highlight of the UK business calendar, recognising the key role that local businesses play in driving the British economy.

Our rods team will now go forward to represent the region in the national finals, which take place in London in November.

Richard Sims, British Steel Managing Director Wire Rod, said: “We’re delighted to have won this award which recognises the quality of our people, products and services.

“A key part of our ongoing transformation is focused on growing into new markets, at home and abroad, and we’re pleased to be making significant progress on both these fronts.

“Our growth will be further supported by the £50-million upgrade we’re undertaking at our Scunthorpe Rod Mill, and the full integration of FN Steel – the wire rod business we acquired in the Netherlands last October – into our business.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to this decision and we look forward to attending the national awards later this year.”
