HOW WE PERFORMED
1 Return on Net Assets is defined as EBIT / average monthly Net Operating Assets.
New Zealand Steel contributed $44 million in earnings before interest and tax in 2002/03.
Raw steel production was at record levels, reflecting better operational performance and the completion of the previous year's No. 2 Melter reline. During the year, the decision was made to increase our existing metal coating capacity by 24,000 tonnes per annum.
A markedly improved safety performance was delivered, with the business achieving record low lost time injury frequency rates. Environmental certification to the ISO 14001 standard was achieved across New Zealand Steel.
