Teesside shipping and logistics giant AV Dawson has sealed a deal with British Steel that is poised to create new jobs. The firm has won a three-year extension to support the steel giant’s rolling operations at its Special Profiles facility in Skinningrove and at its Teesside Beam Mill in Lackenby. Directors said the extension will strengthen the on-going partnership between the two firms, secure the jobs of more than 70 employees and creates a further 12 new roles. The team carry out a variety of jobs including de-scaling machinery, on site logistics support, managing the recycling and waste solutions and carrying out the deep cleaning operations on-site during shut-downs.

The Middlesbrough firm, winner of the Services Award at the North East Business Awards as well as a British Chambers of Commerce award for customer service, has operated on-site logistics on the sites for more than five years.

AV Dawson managing director Gary Dawson said: “We are delighted to have secured a further three year contract with British Steel. Over the past five years we have built a strong partnership with British steel and we have become an integral part of their teams on both sites. We can provide a number of onsite logistics services on our customers’ own sites, enabling them to increase efficiency by bringing in a specialist with specific expertise and equipment. This ranges from stevedoring, shunting and stock management to the full onsite logistics support we provide for British Steel. As a business, we continuously look at ways in which we can improve and expand our services for our customers by offering increased safety and productivity levels. Our recent investment illustrates our commitment to the long term partnership we have with British Steel.”
