Construction firms refusing to sign charter for sustainable British steel

Steel reinforcement mesh suppliers may well find that their businesses are affected by the refusal of some larger construction companies to sign the Charter for Sustainable British Steel, which is backed by both Tory and Labour MPs.

 

The Charter calls on companies to use British-made steel whenever they can, but six firms – Wates, Willmott Dixon, BAM Construction, Kier, Mace and Interserve – have yet to sign up, according to the Daily Mirror, which is also supporting the scheme.

 

A Save Our Steel campaign is also running at the moment, calling for cuts in energy bills and business rates for steel plants, as well as encouraging UK companies to buy British and blocking cheap exports from China.

 

When asked about the Charter, parent company of BAM Construction BAM Nuttall said the firm was “committed to a local supply chain wherever possible”, although it did add: “The way [the Charter] is currently worded, we wouldn’t be able to stick to it.”

 

And a spokesman from Mace said: “Mace promotes the use of high quality British steel and local procurement whenever possible. We always aim to use UK steel in the first instance, supply permitting.”

 

Earlier this month (January 18th), Tata Steel confirmed that it would be making huge job cuts across its numerous sites in the UK after European steel prices dropped because of cheap imports from countries like China.

 

It was revealed that 1,050 jobs would go at Port Talbot, Hartlepool, Corby and Trostre. The business will now be looking at how more support to local communities can be offered, while also stimulating job creation in the regions affected.
