British Steel opportunities for the supply chain.
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 27 Jun 2018
Support for manufacturing operations is being sought by British Steel, with the company keen to embrace the latest technology.
The company has entered into a process of going out into the market for a wide range of civils and infrastructure service activities to produce around 2.8 million tonnes of steel annually.
Kelly Branford, British Steel’s procurement senior sourcing lead for services, said: “We’re seeking innovative, performance-driven service providers that meet our pre-selection criteria, are passionate about what they do and focused on delivering value to their customers.
“This is an exciting opportunity for new and existing suppliers to be involved in offering alternative, innovative and proven service solutions that will support British Steel in producing steel of the highest quality and at the best value for our customers.
“The business produces around 2.8 million tonnes of steel every year but none of this would be possible without having highly effective and efficient support for its manufacturing units.”
The services required relate to civils and infrastructure activities across British Steel’s sites in Scunthorpe and Skinningrove, Teesside, and include:
- Civil repairs
- Joinery repairs
- General building
- Painting and decorating
- Floors and ceilings
- Window and door furniture
- Production outages
- Manufactured joinery production
- Road maintenance
- Utility repairs
- Mechanical services
- Electrical services
- Drainage/sanitation (parts only) pump station maintenance
- Production support activities
- Pest control
- Wheel wash maintenance and service
- Winter/summer grounds maintenance
Kelly added: “We’re keen to explore optimum solutions, including the use of the latest technology to maximise our operating results and deliver best value for our business.”
Proven knowledge and experience of working within the steel industry or similar environment and working in high pressure production-critical situations will be essential for consideration.
