Early 1920s A subsidiary company of United Steel Companies, United Strip and Bar Mills, was formed to hold USC's interests in the modern continuous-rolling mills at Templeborough for the production of strip and bar (Templeborough Rolling Mills).

A Morgon continuous merchant bar mill and a steel strip mill was installed. These mills were designed to work in conjunction with the large cogging mill and soaking pit at Templeborough and the series of fourteen open-hearth steel melting furnaces, each of about 50 tons capacity, erected by Steel, Peech and Tozer, Limited, so that eventually the whole plant, including the wire rod mill, would operate as one unit.
