TEESSIDE'S BLAST FURNACE TO RE-OPEN!

 

Fantastic news!

On Thursday 24th February 2011, the deal to purchase the blast furnace at Redcar (Corus Teesside Cast Products) was signed at last. The new owners, Sahaviriya Steel Industries (SSI) which purchased TCP from parent company Tata Steel, hope to have the furnace back on-line and producing steel by the end of 2011.

Congratulations to everyone involved who have worked so hard to make this happen - and thank you for contributing to the continuing heritage of steel making on Teesside.
