  • Ascoval une fois de plus sauvé puis une fois de plus en péril

British Steel, deuxième aciériste du pays qui est aussi le repreneur déclaré d'Ascoval, aurait de gros soucis financiers. Dans le Nord, les syndicats d'Ascoval sont sous le choc après cette annonce inattendue. La presse britannique, elle, évoque le risque d'une possible faillite.

Dans un communiqué, le groupe "confirme que des négociations sont en cours avec le gouvernement britannique pour assurer la continuité de son activité et la poursuite de ses investissements en Grande-Bretagne, dans le contexte des incertitudes créées par le Brexit". Il rappelle avoir déjà dû faire appel à l'aide du gouvernement britannique le mois dernier pour payer auprès de Bruxelles une facture liée aux émissions de CO2.

La chaîne d'information, qui n'identifie pas ses sources, indique qu'un soutien financier avait été décidé par le gouvernement début mai mais que sa conclusion a pris du retard.

"Ces discussions n'ont pas d'impact sur la volonté du groupe British Steel de se porter repreneur de l'aciérie Ascoval de Saint-Saulve", ajoute le groupe britannique, qui entend respecter "tous ses engagements" sans délai supplémentaire.

Une faillite de British Steel menacerait ses 5.000 employés et mettrait un coup d'arrêt à son développement en Europe, marquée récemment par la reprise de l'aciérie Ascoval en France.

Selon Sky News, une partie du groupe, né au printemps 2016 du rachat par le fonds d'investissement Greybull Capital de la division européenne de produits longs du géant indien Tata Steel (rails, sections de construction...), pourrait se placer sous la protection du régime des faillites dès ce mercredi. Interrogé par l'AFP, le ministère de l'Economie n'a pas souhaité faire de commentaire sur ce qu'il a qualifié de fuite.
