Other information: British Steel was founded in 2016 from assets acquired from Tata Steel Europe by Greybull Capital. Prior to the sale, the business was part of Tata Steel Europe (formerly known as Corus).

British Steel was placed in compulsory liquidation in May 2019, putting 5000 jobs at risk and endangering 20000 in the supply chain.

The firm's assets include:
