UK Steel Enterprise is the subsidiary of Tata Steel tasked with helping the economic regeneration of communities affected by changes in the steel industry. We work in steel areas across the UK assisting job and wealth creation by supporting small and medium sized businesses with finance and business premises.
Since our establishment in 1975, our strategy has remained straight forward and consistent: to create a supportive environment for the great entrepreneurial spirit that exists in our small business communities, and in doing so, to encourage job and wealth creation in our steel areas.
During this time we have provided business finance and premises, together with help and advice, to more than 6,000 growth businesses. Our financial support to date totals over £85million and has enabled UK Steel Enterprise supported businesses to create over 75,000 new jobs in our steel areas. In addition we have been able to contribute both in kind and financially to numerous worthwhile community support initiatives.
And though each company and every project has been different, they all share the same common goal - success. UK Steel Enterprise aims to continue fostering such success as the best way of helping our communities to thrive and generate the most exciting prospects for the future.
The continuing work of UK Steel Enterprise is a demonstration of the commitment of Tata Steel to sustainable corporate social responsibility. Economic regeneration, is by necessity, a long term process. UK Steel Enterprise is committed to maintaining its support for as long as it takes!
