thyssenkrupp Schulte is strengthening its sales and logistics site in Frankfurt for carbon steel, stainless steel as well as nonferrous metals. It aims to expand its reach beyond the region, Kallanish learns from the company, which is a distribution arm of the thyssenkrupp Materials Services division.
Among other things the company is investing in the expansion of the high-bay warehouse and processing equipment at the site, the company says. “The expansion of our Frankfurt site is an important milestone,” says Ilse Henne, ceo of thyssenkrupp Schulte. “Our core competencies include the development of tailored material and supply chain solutions which we deliver reliably,” she emphasises. The Osthafen site offers the ideal conditions for these services.
The city of Frankfurt am Main is aiming to expand and further improve the good conditions for companies in the Osthafen (East Port) district. With the Council’s adoption of the ‘Osthafen development 2050+’ plan in 2013, the city resolved to secure the area as a commercial site up to 2050. “We are pleased that we can now offer reliable perspectives to a further company,” a councillor, Markus Frank, comments.
The tk branch in the Frankfurt Osthafen district covers a total area of 28,000 square metres, of which 15,000m² is used as storage space. Around 65 employees currently work for tk Schulte in Frankfurt.
