Sheffield Steel firm could shed 300 jobs


Three hundred jobs could be cut at the last remaining big stainless steel producer in Sheffield, the firm Outokumpu has confirmed.

Outokumpu, the world’s second-largest stainless steel producer, blames a global oversupply of steel for the proposed job cuts at its Tinsley site.

Around 100 jobs may go at the melting shop and 200 may go at the coil division early next year.

One thought on “Sheffield Steel firm could shed 300 jobs”

  1. I worked a mile down the Road from the Stainless plant for nearly 20 years.

    At that time it was part of the old “British Steel”

    It’s a sad day for Sheffield.

    Fortunately Steelmaking will hopefully continue “next door” in Rotherham, which has incidently always been a bigger steel producer than it’s more famous neighbour.
