Production Service De-Risk
Under new ownership following the acquisition by Jingye, British Steel (BSL) undertook an extensive review of all Business critical services. This review highlighted a number of outsourced activities that were key to our operations. Some of those key activities had the potential to halt our production process, and BSL had little or no control over the work. Internal expertise and knowledge was with a third party supplier and essential equipment was also owned by the suppliers. The Production Services category became the focus of a £40m insourcing strategy, leading to the TUPE of c.450 personnel along with key equipment purchases.
