Steel metals high-bay warehouse Birsfelden
With a length of 40 meters, a height of 21 meters and a width of 25 meters, Debrunner Acifer AG’s new high-bay warehouse in Birsfelden has room for 3,000 cassettes and 9,000 tons of steel.

Debrunner Acifer AG recently put its new high-bay warehouse in Birsfelden into operation. Built as a rack-supported structure with a length of 40 meters, a height of 21 meters and a width of 25 meters, the warehouse has room for 3,000 cassettes in which mainly products of up to six-and-a-half meters in length are stored. With a maximum capacity of three tons per cassette, a total of up to 9,000 tons can be accommodated in a narrow space.

The handling of orders is coupled with the company’s merchandise management system. Thanks to short distances between the high-bay warehouse and the preprocessing facility and to modern order-picking and sawing systems, waiting times are eliminated and the material can be delivered to the customer more quickly. Five output points with directly adjacent packaging and sawing stations likewise make for short processing time and perfect protection for further transport.

Alongside the automatic long goods warehouse, four saws have been installed for the product areas of steel bars and quality steel. Each workstation has its own magnetic crane and allows for autonomous work. To guard occupational safety and health, the facilities offer optimum lighting conditions, ergonomically designed workstations and technical equipment that meets the highest safety standards.

With the new high-bay warehouse and modern preprocessing facility, steel processing and distribution is now more efficient than ever. Through strategic consolidation at the steel warehouse, the company’s nationwide resources can be effectively bundled and the processes systematically optimised. As a result, customers benefit from significantly faster order processing and custom processing services.
