Thyssenkrupp Schulte has announced the start of a new production hall with multi-strip cut-to-length line at its unit Jacob Bek in Ulm, southern Germany.
The new facility will allow for the processing of up to 60,000 more tonnes/year of material, and for coil weights of up to 30t, as Kallanish reported one year ago when construction began. Project participants were construction company Goldbeck and plant manufacturer Salico. The production hall has an area of around 2,500 m2 and is equipped with two modern crane systems with a lifting capacity of up to 32t.
According to parent group thyssenkrupp Materials Services, the sustainable aspect was the focus of the new building: in addition to electric forklifts, there are parking spaces for e-cars as well as charging stations for e-bikes. Furthermore, the building is tempered by a heat pump heating system. With these measures, Jacob Bek is contributing to supporting thyssenkrupp Materials Services’ goal of climate neutrality by 2030, the parent company notes.
