||In 1999 British Steel merged with the Dutch steel and aluminium producer Koninklijke Hoogovens to form an exciting new force in metals called Corus. The new group will rise to the challenge of todays global markets, serving the market needs for aluminium, carbon steel and stainless steel.
One of the aims of Coruss education programme is to enhance the work related curriculum and enrich classroom activity.
