Klöckner adds new warehouse in Landsberg

After approximately one year of construction, Klöckner & Co has opened a new warehouse at its location in Landsberg in eastern Germany, Kallanish learns.

The distribution company spent €4.5 million ($5.1m) on a new workspace of 4,500 square metres in area plus an external storage facility of 3,000m², along with machinery and cranes. The expansion makes Landsberg the largest location in Klöckner’s Region Ost, which also includes sites in Zwickau and Kaufungen. It enables Landsberg to provide the complete product range for the region and adds an inventory volume of 3,000 tonnes.

Among the new features are a separation device and a foiling machine for formats of 2,000×4,000mm, which makes the region independent from services from other sites. Along with the opening of the new facility, the Landsberg site also celebrated its 25th anniversary.
