Sheffield Forgemasters has lodged plans for the construction of a building to house its new large forging press. The company has submitted a full planning application to Sheffield City Council for development at its site on Brightside Lane, where it wants to construct a new 144,000 sq ft structure on the site of its existing forge building, alongside the new forge. The new building, which forms part of a significant investment programme, would accommodate a new 13,000 tonne forging press capable of pressing larger ingots. A target date of 2025 has been set for the new forge press to be in operation.
