Thyssen Krupp Materials Services invests in hubs in Europe
Thyssen Krupp Materials Services, the distribution and service provider of the thyssenkrupp group, is investing around EUR 70 million in the upgrade and expansion of its European warehousing and logistics network. A logistics centre and new warehouses will be set up in Germany, Poland and Hungary.
A state-of-the-art logistics centre with around 36,000 sqm of storage space is to be built in Rotenburg/Wümme (Lower Saxony, Germany). The company is investing around EUR 60 million in the site, which will store up to 20,000 t of materials to guarantee maximum material availability. The ground-breaking ceremony is planned for the end of the year. Serving customers in the north of Germany, the new logistics and processing hub is scheduled to go on stream in 2021.
Thyssen Krupp Materials Services is investing a total of EUR 11 million in the expansion of its sites in Nowe Marzy (Poland) and Budapest (Hungary). Two new modern warehouses are to become operational at the end of September. With around 13,500 sqm of storage space, the new warehouse in Nowe Marzy is an addition to the hub in northern Poland, which was built in 2017. The new facility in Budapest will fill an area of around 6,500 sqm. (mw)
