No. 1 Colorcoat line investment

Tata Steel announces the potential sale of its UK assets. Despite new challenges in terms of customer/supplier relationships and staff retention and morale, the works remains profitable.

The company approves a £7.5 million investment for modification of the No. 1 Colorcoat line to produce the next generation of coated products from 2017.

The clubhouse at the works’ Sports and Social Club in Rowley’s Drive, Shotton, closes in April as a consequence of Tata’s decision to withdraw its financial support for the club.
