Poland – Metals recycler TSR has unveiled its latest facility in Poland – the company’s second in the country. An existing scrap yard located in Dabrowa GÃ³rnica, some 20 kilometres from the city of Katowice, the acquisition should ‘especially strengthen the business in southern Poland’, according to TSR’s chairman Edwin Leijnse.
TSR has been active in Poland since 2011, running a scrap yard at Inowroclaw from where it focuses on the market in the north-western part of the country. From its headquarters in Katowice, TSR Poland has been active in the southern part of the country since 2012, operating as a pure trading company and selling to customers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, as well as in Poland.
With over 38 million inhabitants, Poland is the sixth most populous country in the EU. Since joining the EU in 2004, the country’s metals processing industry has developed dynamically, mainly thanks to a traditionally strong equipment and machinery construction industry. Also in recent years, Poland has seen automotive industry growth.
Poland’s ferrous scrap market amounts to around 6 million tonnes per year, of which some 1 million tonnes is exported primarily to Germany and the Baltic countries. With 150 branches in Europe and 2400 employees, TSR generates an annual turnover of more than Euro 3 billion, handling and trading more than 8 million tonnes of scrap annually.
