About this event

Speaker: Andrew Douglass, Engineering Director
Liberty House Group are pursuing a GREENSTEEL strategy to turn the tide for UK manufacturing. Their acquisition of the Tata Steel Speciality Steels assets in May 2017 provided them with a significant step forward in achieving this aim. In the 9 months since the purchase Speciality Steels have reversed some of  the asset closures and are re-establishing customer links in a more positive economic environment. The talk will cover the transition of Speciality Steels into the Liberty House Group, the GreenSteel strategy with asset reconfiguration, and how a more holistic approach will help shape the future of Speciality Steels.

The event will be held in the Paragon Conference Centre (Ground Floor), Off Smithy Hill
