1,000 jobs boost for Redcar plant

THAILAND'S biggest steel producer is creating 1,000 jobs at the Teesside Cast Products site in Redcar, which it bought for £320 million from Corus earlier this year.

The plant was mothballed more than a year ago under Corus' ownership after a major contract fell through, leading to the loss of more than 1,000 of the 1,800-strong workforce and sparking fears for its future. Sahaviriya Steel Industries said it will start recruiting next month.
