Paul Martin, British Steel Deputy CEO, said: “We wanted to share with people what an awe-inspiring business and industry we’re in and this film captures the pride, passion and performance at the heart of British Steel.

“Not everybody is aware of the scale of our operations or the technology that goes into making our steel – this film is an incredible showcase of who we are.

“We’ve never produced anything like this before and we’re thrilled with the results.”

With annual steel production of around 3 million tonnes, British Steel’s business is complex. It can transform raw materials into nearly 1,500 different grades of steel and specialises in rail, wire rod, constructional steel and special profiles.

The film was shot at British Steel’s Scunthorpe steelworks and at its Teesside operations including Teesside Beam Mill and Special Profiles mill in Skinningrove.

It highlights the production process including ironmaking, steelmaking, rolling and product testing and was filmed in partnership with David Lund Photography.

David said: “The scale of British Steel is extraordinary and I was inspired by the people, their passion and their commitment. My intention was to create something that celebrated them and the magnificence of the subject, and I’m incredibly proud of the finished project.”
