“We have a unique ability to support our customers because of our Tata Steel ownership, which makes us the only steel distribution group to have both its mill and processing operations in the UK and Ireland.” Steel said this meant that Tata Steel not only knows “our products and services inside out, but we can offer customersm consistent quality and repeatability”.
The new centre amalgamates Tata Steel’s plate cutting and machining capability into a single facility able to offer a comprehensive suite of tailored processing services to meet specific customer requirements and increases Steelpark’s profiling capacity to 47,000 tonnes per annum. Besides bringing together existing technology from other Tata Steel sites at one location in Steelpark, Europe’s second-largest steel producer has invested in two new high-definition plasma profiling machines, which it claims will reduce lead times and increase responsiveness. The new facility will house five hi-definition plasma profiling machines, two laser profiling machines, two gas profiling machines, five machining centres and three flattening presses. (PTI)
