Gary Blackman, Tata Steel Corby Works Manager, said: “The programme is essential to ensuring a sustainable future for our site and generations of steel workers to come. It will enable us to reconfigure our operations and achieve the highest levels of operational efficiency.”
Commenting on the landmark programme Coenraad Spaans, Tata Steel Operational Director Tubes, added: “The programme will map out a sustainable future for the Corby site and it lays the foundations for future growth.”
The company says that sustainability is at the core of the improvements, with material from old concrete floors being recycled on site to help create the sub-base for the warehouse – work on which has now started. Meanwhile, the relocation of the RHS and CFM processes will see improved efficiency and reduced energy consumption.
