EMW Steel Service puts into operation new dispatch hall constructed with CO2-reduced steel form ArcelorMittal

After six months of construction, EMW Steel Service GmbH can now operate much more efficiently at its Treuen site in Saxony with the commissioning of the new dispatch hall.

The extension, with a storage area of over 1,200 square meter and an enclosed space of 10,200 cubic meters, significantly improves processes. The storage capacities have grown by around 2,000 tonnes of material ready for shipment, allowing for continuous operation of two shifts from this year onwards.

After 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, depending on weather conditions. This will create new loading spots, allowing more trucks to be loaded in parallel in the future – a major gain in productivity. Since the entire loading process is accelerated, more loads can be handled per day, significantly reducing the dwell time of trucks on the factory premises.

In addition to efficiency gains, sustainability aspects were particularly focused on in this construction project. For the entire steel structure, only “green steel” from the X-Carb® brand by ArcelorMittal was used: “Our self-imposed goal is to become climate-neutral by 2030 in scope one and two. For this purpose, we have already started numerous projects and activities in our organisation. Moreover, we cooperate with our long-standing supply partners in the procurement of CO2-reduced steels – and naturally, we also use this quality in our own construction projects like in Treuen,” says Michael Mockenhaupt, Chairman of the EMW executive board.

“The mill-independent EMW Steel Service Centre maintains long-standing business relationships with steel producers, some spanning decades, and is a pioneer in trading and processing so-called green steel: we can offer our customers almost all available grades and surface coatings of CO2-reduced steels,” Michael Mockenhaupt further explains.
