ANGLO-DUTCH steel manufacturer Corus has won two prestigious steel supply contracts on landmark schemes.
The specialist is shipping out almost 4,000 tonnes of its structural steel sections to New York for use during the reconstruction of Number 7 World Trade Center from its Teesside beam mill in Redcar.
Corus has already supplied 700 tonnes of steel for use on the construction of the building's foundations and now on-site fabricator Helmark Steel is to erect the 52-storey, 228 m structure on the site of its predecessor, which was destroyed by the terrorist attacks in September 2001.
The contract is the second major deal unveiled by Corus in a matter of weeks as it clinched the contract to supply steel contractor Cleveland Bridge with 21,000 tonnes of material for use on the Wembley National Stadium project.
The Wembley contract includes the supply of steel sections, plates and tubes for the scheme, led by main contractor Multiplex.
