SSI reaches one million tonnes milestone
SSI has announced that its Teesside facility has now produced one million tonnes of steel since the plant was restarted in April.
Phil Dryden, the iron and steel maker's UK chief executive, said "Although his has been a very tough year for steel businesses across the globe, the plant has operated extremely well since the restart and this is another important milestone reached.
"It is a demonstration of the commitment shown by SSI UK employees and is testament to the support received from all the stakeholders involved in the rebirth of iron and steelmaking on Teesside."
