Hamburg: New thyssenkrupp Plastics logistics center starts operation
Since April 4, the German market leader for plastics products in the building construction, visual communication, piping systems and engineering plastics segments has been serving its customers from a new logistics hub for northern Germany: thyssenkrupp Plastics has rented a state-of-the-art logistics center at the Tornesch business park to better serve the needs of major customers in the region. In addition to plastics products, this includes numerous services for product and application advice as well as an extensive processing service.
"With a direct connection to the A23 federal highway, Tornesch is integrated into the Hamburg metropolitan region, and the state capital Kiel as well as the North and Baltic Seas can be reached in less than an hour. The area has undergone constant development in recent years. The modern environment with its diverse sectors offers ideal conditions for our business," says Nicolas Neuwirth, Chairman of the Management Board of thyssenkrupp Plastics GmbH, explaining the company's decision in favor of the new location. The logistics center consists of a single-story hall measuring around 7,800 square meters with a height of 10 meters, housing warehousing, production and sales. A total of 35 employees work at the new Tornesch site.
The move to Tornesch, north of Hamburg, finally completes the disposal of the previous Hamburg site in Waidmanstrasse, which was already sold in 2017. "We have moved into a modern and efficient building that is technically and environmentally up to date and precisely tailored to our needs," says Christian Wisley- Schulz, branch manager of thyssenkrupp Plastics.
Essen-based thyssenkrupp Plastics GmbH is part of thyssenkrupp Materials Services and is a German-wide service provider for product and application advice, processing, procurement and supply. The portfolio of over 40,000 plastics products and brands comes exclusively from well-known, internationally active producers who are among the technology and market leaders in their respective product areas. The sales program is geared to the specific requirements of customers in the DIY and construction trade, building construction, industrial piping systems, engineering plastics and visual communication sectors.
