Liberty Steel has confirmed a £60m investment in its production hub in Rotherham.

Liberty, part of GFG Alliance, has committed to a programme of new investments at its South Yorkshire GREENSTEEL hub to supply the transport, defence, and construction sectors as part of the Government’s Build Back Better plan.

The investments will remove production bottlenecks at its electric arc furnace (N-Furnace) and small bloom caster in Rotherham, helping the business to double existing steel output to one million tonnes per annum.
