Non-ferrous relocation complete
The relocation of the non-ferrous yard from Rotterdam to Dordrecht went smoothly and the non-ferrous section of the site opened to deliveries on 15 May 2017. Ferrous and non-ferrous materials are now received and processed at a single mega-site covering 11.5 hectares.
The relocation was a major project, which not only involved moving the headquarters, but also all machinery, including the grab cranes and scrap shears. We managed to process and deliver most materials before the relocation, but despite our efforts, we still had almost 5,000 tonnes to move from Rotterdam to Dordrecht in under two weeks. The non-ferrous section of the site spans 14,000m2, making it 40% larger than at the old site in Rotterdam. This concentration of operations is the final phase in our strategy to centralise our sites, material and knowledge.
