LIBERTY Steel Group UK is expanding its UK GREENSTEEL strategy with investment programmes at its Rotherham steel operations focussed on an evolving market demand and gaps in the domestic supply chain.
Plant upgrades since 2017 has enabled the business to more than double production to over 500,000 tonnes per annum.
In June 2020, LIBERTY Steel Group announced production at the Rotherham steel operations will be boosted to over 1mtpa through investments to expand its product mix and making more productive use of its rolling mills to target attractive market segments.
LIBERTY Steel Group will expand its GREENSTEEL product range at Rotherham to include the production of construction rebar from September 2020.
There are also plans to add capability to produce wire rod to feed both engineering and construction markets.
With this new product strategy, LIBERTY Steel will supply UK produced GREENSTEEL into the pipeline of domestic infrastructure projects that will be vital to the UK’s recovery in the post-pandemic economy.
