01 October 2013: this was the official date when INTERSEROH NRW GmbH became a part of the TSR Group; since then, it has been operating under the name TSR RheinRuhr GmbH. Over the years, TSR has been able to steadily extend its market position as the leading steel and metal recycler. The TSR Group decided to make this important investment in order to sustainably strengthen its position in North Rhine-Westphalia, one of the leading industrial regions in Europe. Now that the transaction has also been approved by the Federal Cartel Office, the business – which is located in Dortmund Harbour – officially belongs to TSR.
Besides the head office in Dortmund, TSR also took over the businesses in Münster, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Werdohl. Whilst the Münster and Werdohl branches were sold on to REMONDIS / Kluger Metallhandelsgesellschaft mbH at the same time on 01 October, the Dortmund and Mülheim branches have become part of TSR’s RheinRuhr region. Thanks to this move, the company now has an even more effective and customer-friendly network of branches – with its Duisburg branch in the west of the state and the new Dortmund business in the east. This deal has clearly strengthened TSR’s position in this region. By pooling together their activities, it is possible to reduce overcapacity and use their equipment in the best possible way. The foundations have been laid, therefore, for strategic and sustainable growth in this important metropolitan region.
Metal scrap recycling really is environmental protection “in action”: TSR is one of the leading companies in Europe recycling scrap steel and non-ferrous metals. Indeed, one of the strengths of the TSR Group is providing its customers with bespoke concepts for managing and recycling metal waste. With a Europe-wide network of 150 branches and a workforce of 2,400 employees, TSR has an annual turnover of three billion euros and trades more than eight million tonnes of scrap every year. As a result, TSR is one of the main suppliers of metal for the steel industry and also acts as an intermediary between suppliers and customers. Scrap steel and other metals are collected, sorted, processed and returned to the recycling economy. Working together with its partners from the waste management sector, the TSR Group is also able to collect all other types of waste.
“In view of the fact that economic growth remains weak and that existing capacities are not being used to their full potential, it makes good business sense to pool together the activities of the various processing facilities. We believe that we have sustainably strengthened TSR’s position in North Rhine-Westphalia by acquiring INTERSEROH NRW.”
