ThyssenKrupp invests in logistics sites
ThyssenKrupp Materials Services, the distribution and service provider of the ThyssenKrupp Group, is investing some €70 million in the modernisation and expansion of its European warehousing and logistics network.
It will set up a logistics centre and new warehouses in Germany, Poland and Hungary, an important part of the company’s ‘materials as a service’ strategy.
‘Expanding and modernising our capacities are important elements of our growth,’ Klaus Keysberg, CEO of Thyssenkrupp Materials Services, said.
‘Innovative logistics, automation and digitalisation help[s] us improve our performance and our productivity. Connected processing equipment and the digital integration of the company's sites aims to ensure flexible and perfectly coordinated logistics processes and services.’
A logistics centre with 36,000 square metres of storage space is being built in Rotenburg/Wümme in Lower Saxony in Germany, and the company is investing approximately €60 million in this site that will store up to 20,000 tonnes of materials to guarantee maximum material availability.
Building is expected to begin by the end of the year, and it will serve customers in the north of Germany when it becomes operational in 2021.
Thyssenkrupp Materials Services is investing the remaining €11 million in the expansion of its sites in Nowe Marzy, Poland and Budapest, Hungary, and these two new warehouses are set to start operations at the end of September.
With around 13,500 square metres of storage space, the new warehouse in Nowe Marzy is in addition to the hub already in place in north Poland that was built in 2017, while the new facility in Budapest will cover a space of around 6,500 square metres.
