Tata Steel is transforming its Corby steel tube making site in the English East Midlands claiming sustainability will be at at its heart.
Work has started at the 150-acre site which manufactures products for everything from sports stadium and skyscrapers - such as the Shard in London - to hospital beds and renewable green energy schemes around the world. Workers at the site produce steel tube products from steel made at the company's Port Talbot works. Now manufacturing processes on the site will be brought closer together as part of the £25 million scheme.
Chairman of Tata Steel UK Ltd, Sandip Biswas, said: "Steel is, and will continue to be, an essential part of the UK's plans to decarbonise for the future. We need to ensure we are able to make and supply the products right here in the UK which will help transition to a net-zero future."
Tata claim sustainability is at the core of the improvements with material from old concrete floors being recycled on site to help create the sub-base for the warehouse. And the relocation of the RHS and CFM processes will see improved efficiency and reduced energy consumption.
