In 1973 Bilston Works was part of BSC’s Special Steels Division which was split into two groups: Forges, Foundries and Engineering and Steelworks. Bilston formed part of the Steelworks Group along with Brymbo, Panteg, Rotherham and Stocksbridge. Given Bilston’s capabilities in lower carbon, low alloy and leaded, free cutting, steels the works was deemed special enough to warrant being within the Special Steels rather than the ‘lesser’ General Steels Division . There was a subsequent reorganisation later in the 1970’s and Bilston would finally be within what was called the Sheffield Division of BSC.
See below a street map showing the location of the works along with two diagrams showing the make up of the Special Steels Division. The first shows the geography of the division with the second (lower right) giving more details on the products from the various works themslves.
