Wednesfield – Steel Park In The News Again!

Wednesfield is not just a place to own a home, or visit for a shopping trip. It also has great leisure activities and it has some great national and international companies active in producing jobs, product and headlines worldwide.

For instance Wednesfield’s Tata Owned Steel Park is in the news again, as the 525 employees learn that the major investment that Tata made over recent times, has reaped dividends as the company has swung back into the black.

The Wednesfield Steel Park is the largest steel service center of its type active in the UK.

That by itself sets it out from its competitors.

It appears that the new robot welding line has gone down very well, and is making a significant difference in the way that the site operates. Welding robotics have also made an impact on profit. The welding line is now a key component in producing car parts, not just a few car parts, but more than two million of them a year!

Now taking Wednesfield with other Tata investments from around their Group in Europe, the performance over the last twelve weeks has lifted profits towards £230million and the companies best quarterly results since 2008.

This fifty acre Steel Park is a massive benefit to Wednesfield, and certainly helps put the City of Wolverhampton in which Wednesfield is a district , on the international manufacturing map.

Long may it continue I say!
