British Steel opens new Scunthorpe Metal Centre

British Steel has expanded its service to the Yorkshire and Humber region’s construction industry by opening a new metal centre.

The facility, based at British Steel’s Scunthorpe headquarters, will supply a wide-range of constructional steel products and services to businesses of all sizes – from major developers to local housebuilders.

The new Scunthorpe Metal Centre, which replaces a smaller facility on the outskirts of the town, has created 10 jobs.

As well as cutting to length, the Scunthorpe Metal Centre also offers shot-blasting and painting services.

Richard Farnsworth, British Steel’s Managing Director Construction, said: “Our new metal centre is an exciting development, not only for us but for the region’s construction industry.

“Moving to bigger facilities allows us to offer customers an extended range of steel products including our UK manufactured structural sections with next day delivery as standard.

“We want to become the supplier of choice to this region’s construction industry and believe our new Scunthorpe Metal Centre, supported by our facility in Hull, will help us lead business and community re-development throughout the Yorkshire and Humber area.”
