PSML begins production soon-CEO

Chief Executive Officer of Premium Steel and Mines Limited, formerly called Delta Steel Company, Ovwian-Aaldja, Mr. Prasanta Mishra has assured that production would begin at the Aladja Steel Complex before the end of this year, disclosing that the ongoing resuscitation process with various challenges and predicaments is now at advanced stage.

The CEO called on the host communities and all stakeholders to cooperate with the company to enable it achieve the vision of the Federal Government for self-sufficiency in steel production and strong technological base for the country.

Addressing newsmen in his office at the plant Sunday June 18, Mr. Mishra disclosed that the company was pursuing the resuscitation programme with all the aggression it deserves so as to fling open the door of employment for the teeming army of unemployed but qualified youths roaming the streets of Nigerian towns and villages.

He maintained that in the short period Premium Steel has taken over former DSC, the company has impacted positively in various areas of needs of the host communities particularly in the educational and health needs of the people through provision of critical facilities to tackle the challenges being faced by the people in those sectors and many others. He added that while PSML will continue to pay attention to Corporate Social Responsibility and other activities, the communities were bound to reap immense benefits from the company once production begins.

He therefore appealed to the people to support the resuscitation programme and discourage actions, activities and utterances capable of hampering the laid out programme of actions designed to speed up the resuscitation plans for production to begin.

‘’Let me assure you that production will begin at the plant before the end of this year all things being equal. The resuscitation programme is on top gear and we hope to deliver on our promises to begin production as soon as possible. But first we must get the various units of the plant which have been out of use for about 5-10 years to life, inject the necessary oxygen to activate the various arteries of the plant and bring it to production level as soon as possible. Once that is achieved, we shall employ hundreds of people for the first phase of production and thereafter, things can only get better for everybody’’, the CEO assured, adding that, the plant when into full production capacity shall give direct and indirect employments to over five thousand staff which impact on the local economy.
