Firm celebrates four decades of showing steel
Old and new Outokumpu employees mark 40 years of SMACC

A STEEL firm marked 40 years of its melting and casting operations by inviting back employees from the time.

Outokumpu’s SMACC — stainless melting and continuous casting — became active in November 1977, under British Steel Stainless.

The production capability has developed from mainly slab casting to producing billets, blooms and cast ingots.

A spokeswoman for the company, based at Tinsley, said: “SMACC focuses on producing highly tailored stainless steel for demanding end-use applications, such as the oil and gas, nuclear and Chemical industry, to name but a few.

“We will continue to make sure we can service our customers in a flexible way, and aim to increase our production volumes in the coming year.”
