Corus Adopts Tata Steel as its New Identity

Corus joined the Tata Steel family in April 2007 in a transaction that created one of the world’s largest steelmakers, with a major presence in Europe as well as Asia. Like Corus and its predecessors, Tata Steel has a history of having pioneered the first integrated steelworks in India a century ago. Kirby Adams, MD & CEO of Tata Steel Europe, said: “The companies that comprise Tata Steel Europe have evolved over many decades from local to national to regional players. They now form part of one of the world’s top ten steelmakers, with a wide product range, a relatively high degree of raw materials self-sufficiency and a global market reach from manufacturing sites across Europe and Asia.“ Tata Steel Europe (formerly Corus) is Europe’s second largest steel producer. With main steelmaking operations in the UK and the Netherlands. The combined Group has an aggregate crude steel capacity of more than 28 Mt/a and approximately 80 000 employees across four continents. (09/2010)
