ON-SITE FACILITY HAMM-UENTROP / DUBAY
In November 2003, a first silo battery with 12 aluminum silos with a capacity of 240 m³ each was put into operation on the premises of the DuPont plant for the exclusive use of their customer DuBay. The silo battery is connected via a pipeline directly with production. The natural PBT manufacturered there was transported to DuBay customers exclusively on SCHMIDT vehicles (road tankers and containers).
After DuBay extended their manufacturing to additional products and compound lines during 2007 and 2011, SCHMIDT expanded their logistics facility likewise: 6 silos with a capacity of 125 m³ each as well as a bagging and palletizing line with bagging stations for octabins and big bags were set up in the spring of 2007 and since November 2011 6 other silos with the same capacity are in operation. Meanwhile, SCHMIDT took over the complete handling of raw materials and the operation of DuPont’s own warehouses for their customer DuBay.
