As the first large outsourcing project on the premises of a chemical plant in Germany, a silo storage facility including bagging and palletizing machinery was built at Huerth-Knapsack near Cologne in 1990.
Over the years, a chemical park has been set up in this area, where SCHMIDT continued to build additional logistics facilities. Warehouses and the state-of-the-art tank cleaning facility for road tankers and container trucks for bulk goods are partly open to companies in- and outside of the Knapsack Chemical Park.
