A new distribution centre, capable of handling 25 tonne steel coils, is being opened in Darlaston, following an agreement between the UK's largest automotive steel processing company, Steel & Alloy Processing and Honda Trading Europe.
Steel & Alloy Narrow Products, previously based in Smethwick, will relocate to the new depot giving the business more space to develop and grow.
The new distribution centre contains three five-tonne cranes, two 25-tonne cranes and a 36,000 sq ft bay, making it the perfect facility for the storage and distribution of large coils.
Steel & Alloy managing director Mark Cooper said: "We have invested in this new distribution centre as a direct result of our relationship with Honda Trading Europe, for whom we currently process approximately 60,000 tonnes of steel a year.
"Vehicle manufacturers are always looking for ways to streamline their operations and this facility achieves this goal."
