Investing to expand

Kloeckner Metals UK has announced the completion of the purchase of a site in Thurrock, Essex UK to develop a new state of the art facility.

A leading UK multi-metals processing supplier and part of the global Klöckner & Co Group, Kloeckner Metals UK has 14 business units across the country.

The substantial investment into the new site was needed to support the relocation of the existing site at Thames Wharf, London, which, over the years, became too small for the needs of the business. Once completed, the new site will create more than 110K square feet of internal space, including newly built offices, state of the art processing equipment, and the latest digital logistics & operations technologies

Peter Whiting, CEO of Kloeckner Metals UK: “This new investment is an important milestone in Kloeckner’s strategic plan to establish ourselves as one of the leading supply chain partners in the UK. It is a truly exciting time for us as we continue to expand our business both through value added products & processing services and implementation of digital technologies. The new site, and its state-of-the-art equipment, will significantly increase our capabilities and allow us to deliver our mission of ‘getting you the products and services you need when you need them’.”

Conveniently located adjacent to the M25, the new site is expected to be operational during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Processing. Please wait.
