Our state-of-the-art logistics center is located in Emmelsum, on the banks of the Wesel-Datteln Canal. From here, we send our additives all over the world.
We were able to put this logistics center in Emmelsum into operation in 2008. In shift operation, 55 colleagues are responsible for dispatching finished products as well as product samples.
With more than 11,000 pallet storage spaces, in Emmelsum we have a high-bay warehouse that enables us to ship our products at any time and to anywhere. Most of the deliveries are put together fully automatically by conveyor systems and robots. The pallets assembled in this way are then safely stowed in trucks or sea containers by colleagues with forklift trucks and sent to our customers. This procedure protects the health of the colleagues and makes work processes safer and faster.
BYK is also internationally known for its excellent and comprehensive product sample dispatch. More than 2,600 samples leave Emmelsum every year and are sent to companies, research universities, and other institutions free of charge. The trend is rising!
All machines and procedures that we use at BYK for production and warehousing are state of the art. With support from independent, external experts, our plants are regularly tested and monitored by the authorities. We have also joined the international “Responsible Care” program. This program represents the desire to constantly improve conditions to protect health and the environment, as well as conditions for the safety of employees and neighbors – regardless of legal requirements.
