News: New lab for SteelPhalt

By

Road surface specialist Steelphalt has continued to invest in new facilities at its Rotherham site.

Specialising in the conversion of steel slag into a surface course for road making, the company is marking the start of its 50th anniversary year with a £40,000 investment in an expanded laboratory and learning centre at its Sheffield Road site at Templeborough.

The newly extended and improved laboratory facility will give the opportunity for increased research and development work and also for even higher levels of product screening and quality assurance.

At the same time, the company has also invested in an extension of its central learning hub.

Martin Gray, senior operations manager at Steelphalt, said: "We are now bringing in people from as far afield as Glasgow and South Wales for vital training in industry best practice as well as support and development.

"This amount of investment in both the laboratory and the learning hub really does make our site a centre of excellence for hot work, building on the company's vast pool of expertise and experience."

The new facility follows on from investment last year in new purpose built offices to bring together departments on the Templeborough site.

Part of the Harsco Metals Group, the company works in partnership with councils, local authorities and contractors nationwide to "deliver durable roads for a sustainable world."

SteelPhalt has been developing and manufacturing high performance asphalt products for the UK road making industry since the 1960s, sourcing slag cost-effectively from the surrounding steel industry and providing a sustainable way of making asphalt, with at least 95 per cent of the product the result of the recycling process.
