History of AncoferWaldram Steelplates B.V.
AncoferWaldram Steelplates B.V. (AWS) is a stockholding wholesaler and steel service center, specializing in the supply of hot-rolled heavy carbon steel (quarto) plates, and profiled parts. AWS is the result of the 2003 merger between Ancofer Nederland and Waldram-staal. It is a relatively young organization, descended from businesses dating back to the early 70s.
AncoferWaldram Steelplates is a company of Dillinger, Dillingen/Saar, Germany, Europe's leading producer of quarto plates, with a hot rolling capacity of 2.0 million tons per year.
Smart logistics and large stocks
Over the years, AWS has developed into a business that sets the standard for its industry. Our work is carried out both efficiently and cost-effectively at our 300,000 sq ft Oosterhout facility, strategically connected to open water. Our overhead cranes have a lifting capacity of up to 25 tons, allowing us to easily move even the heaviest plates. Our ingenious digital inventory system helps us locate the plates you want, at all times. What's more, we have a direct view of stock available at our associate companies.
The power of Dillinger
We keep a minimum 50,000 tons of heavy plates in stock at our Oosterhout facility. Being part of Dillinger, however, we have access to a total stock of over 100,000 tons.
