Suspension Ironmaker, the company that makes the steel components used to build some of the world’s most iconic steel structures, will build a new facility in Sheffield, Sheffield’s steel mill manager said on Thursday.
The steelmaking plant will have capacity for more than 3,000 employees and will create 3,600 jobs, spokesman John Barham said.
The company also plans to expand its operations in the city.
The firm said it will create a new plant at the former steelworks in Sheffield which will employ up to 5,000 people.
The company has said it has been working with Sheffield to explore possible sites for a new steel mill and will continue to look for new sites.
Barham added that it would be difficult to find any site for the plant without significant new investment.
The plant will be based in a former steel mill that has since closed.
