News: MP visits SteelPhalt in Rotherham


Road surface specialist, SteelPhalt, has welcomed local MP, Kevin Barron to their Rotherham facility to see how they are making the region's roads greener and safer.

The MP for Rother Valley was given a tour of the Templeborough site where SteelPhalt has been developing and manufacturing high performance asphalt products for the UK road making industry since the 1960's.

Dean Raynor, commercial manager at SteelPhalt, said: "We were delighted that Mr Barron, as our MP, made time to visit our plant to learn out more about the process that goes into the creation of the full range SteelPhalt products."

Because of its location at the heart of South Yorkshire's steel industry, the company has always been ideally located to source slag cost-effectively from the surrounding steel industry - a sustainable way of making asphalt since at least 95 per cent of the product is recycled.

With a reputation for first class products matched by a commitment to innovation and sustainability, the company works in partnership with councils, local authorities and contractors nationwide to deliver durable roads for a sustainable world.

SteelPhalt surfaces, which are used across the region, have a high skid resistance and are also a key tool in increasing road safety in busy areas like the roads around schools and other high traffic volume sites.

Part of the Harsco Metals Group, SteelPhalt's steel slag products extends the life of roads and lengthens road maintenance intervals for resurfacing.
