“The announcement that Arrium has been placed in voluntary administration is concerning but unsurprising,” said State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall.
“The debt and operating problems facing Arrium have not crept up on the company.
“At this very difficult time my thoughts are with Arrium employees, their families and the broader Whyalla community.
“The workers at Arrium are not at fault here.
“The State and Federal Governments must do everything they can to work with the appointed administrators to ensure there is a future for Arrium.”
