Think of Sheffield and you can't help but think of steel. The city was founded on iron and steel during the industrial revolution. But you'd be wrong if you thought that industry has declined or even ceased in recent years - in fact more steel is being produced now than at any time in its past. But the industry has changed. What was once a labour-intensive industry now uses automated processes and the city concentrates on specialised steel products that makes best use of the knowledge base at its disposal. And the city has led the world in a whole new industry of advanced manufacturing and material technologies. There is, however, much more to Sheffield than manufacturing.
