Builders' merchant Elbers moves to a new site
Theodor Elbers GmbH & Co. KG in Amelsbüren is relocating. From Monday, 29 September, the subsidiary of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG amcan be reached at its new location at Amelsbürener Strasse 215.
This week, on Friday, the customers of the builders' merchant will be served at the Deermannstrasse site for the last time, before the weekend is used to set up in the new premises.
"We are really excited," says Elbers director Herbert Schmid. In the last few months the 45 employees in Amelsbüren have been following the progress of the construction work with great excitement. "Some remaining work still has to be completed, but we are pleased that it has been possible to heep to the planned schedule," explains Herbert Schmid with relief.
At the new address, Theodor Elbers GmbH has more than 25,000 square metres of space available. The construction work at the site directly at Landesstrasse 885 has been progressing since August last year. Over this period, an office building has been built with a specialist store and indoor display, a 4,400 square-metre warehouse, as well as bulk materials silos with a capacity of around 3,000 tonnes. "The possibilities we have at Amelsbürener Strasse simply cannot be compared to the old location," enthuses Herbert Schmid. Customers will be able to reach the buildders' merchants significantly better in future. On the site itself there are short paths, customer vehicles can be loaded under cover, incoming and outgoing traffic is kept separate. This latter feature was a focus of the planning, explans Schmid. The project has been realized by the construction service of AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG.
Herbert Schmid is hoping for understanding from the neighbours in the centre of Amelsbüren because the Elbers vehicles will have to use the narrow access to Deermannstrasse at the weekend for the relocation. "But is will be the last time."
Theodor Elbers GmbH wants to officially celebrate the opening of the new site in the early summer 2015. "The outdoor display will also be ready by then," according to Herbert Schmid.
