Caparo Industries plc (“CIP”) is a Midlands and London headquartered diversified industrial group.  CIP comprises approximately 20 individual business which are active in UK steel and associated engineering businesses. Specific activities include the forging and pressing of metal products for aerospace, automotive and other industries. It also produces fastenings, wire, tubes and other accessories.

CIP is part of a global network of businesses under the Caparo name, with operations in China, India and the US.  Other than the companies specifically listed in the footer of this email all other business interests of Caparo are unaffected.  Specifically three subsidiaries of Caparo Industries plc are not in administration, these are Caparo Merchant Bar and Caparo India (both UK entities) and Bomet SA (a Polish business), those businesses continue to operate normally.

The recent impact that low commodity prices, exchange rates and China’s steel production has had on the UK Steel industry, extended to certain company's within CIP, impacting results and the funding requirements of the business.  This resulted in the directors taking action to appoint administrators to protect the business as much as possible.
