Sheffield Forgemasters wins order for screw press parts

Sheffield Forgemasters has won an order worth more than €2m (£1.7m) from Schuler Pressen to manufacture components for the construction of a screw press.

The 300-tonne table and 288-tonne headpiece will be completed on site at Sheffield Forgemasters’ Brightside Lane base before being shipped.

Michael Holloway, senior sales manager at SFIL, said: ‘We have worked on similar projects in the past with this client, however, these pieces are much heavier, and they will be finished completely in-house.’

The contract is due for completion by September 2013.
