Biochemica statement in response to SSI Steelworks closure

Worker welding steel

“The news of the closure to the coke ovens and blast furnace at SSI steelworks is devastating. Although Biochemica is not directly affected by this decision, we work with multiple steel producers across the UK and the supply chain and can understand the distress that the thousands of employees face, not to mention the local economy and communities which will encounter uncertainty over the coming months.
