EMW opens new dispatch hall in Saxony

EMW Stahl Service, a mill-independent steel service centre based in western Germany, has opened a new dispatch hall in eastern Germany.

The newly-built location in Treuen, Saxony state was commissioned in February and the firm has pledged further investment in the site, Kallanish hears. It has a storage area of over 1,200m² and an enclosed space of 10,200m³.

The interior work in the warehouse extension was completed in early December 2023. Asphalt work in the outdoor area will follow by the end of March. This will allow more trucks to be loaded in parallel and mean more loads can be handled per day, significantly reducing the dwell time of trucks, EMW underlines.

From April, a new crane system with a lifting capacity of 36 tonnes will go into operation, allowing the inventory to be increased from the current 7,700 tonnes to 16,000 tonnes.

The warehouse’s steel structure used only “green” steel from the X-Carb brand by ArcelorMittal. The “self-imposed goal is to become climate-neutral by 2030 in scope one,” says Michael Mockenhaupt, chairman of EMW’s executive board.

EMW is part of steel fabricator group Schaefer Werke, based in the Siegerland region of North Rhine Westphalia.
