UK Steel Enterprise is proud to have been supporting the economic regeneration of local communities for 40 years.
Established in 1975 by the then British Steel Corporation to ‘put something back’ into steel areas, UK Steel Enterprise has actively sought to provide support, finance and premises to growing businesses ever since. The objective has remained the same: to encourage economic regeneration and job creation in the steel areas of the UK. Over 6,000 businesses have been supported to date and just a few of these are highlighted below.
Today the continuing work of UK Steel Enterprise is backed by the commitment of parent company Tata Steel to corporate citizenship and sustainability.
As part of our 40th celebrations, we ran a competition through schools and youth organisations, to find entrepreneurs of the future - you can read all about our successfull 40:40 Challenge winners in our news section.
