Increased productivity

Although the steel industry experienced falling prices in the early 1990s and further rationalisation was necessary, Shotton remains busy, benefiting from modern equipment and processes, a wide product range, high quality performance and productivity of below three man hours per delivered tonne. British Steel is a world leader in the production of coated steel, with Shotton the premier centre. It is described as a jewel in the company’s crown.
