Dyckerhoff informs about integration of Seibel & Söhne
Yesterday, the management of Dyckerhoff GmbH informed the workers’ council and the employees of Seibel & Söhne about the future plans regarding the Erwitte plant.
The acquisition of Seibel & Söhne will strengthen Dyckerhoff’s position in the German cement market. The current intention of Dyckerhoff is the discontinuation of the clinker and cement production in Erwitte during the course of 2019. The production will be taken over by the existing Dyckerhoff plants in order to achieve necessary efficiency improvements. Thus, the production will be absorbed by plants with modern process and environmental technology.
The precise timing of those planned changes will be communicated by Dyckerhoff in time and with sufficient notice. Cement supply to customers at the Seibel & Söhne plant in Erwitte will be continued in the meantime.
128 employees are currently employed at the plant site. Dirk Beese, Managing Director of Dyckerhoff GmbH: “We will substantiate our plans for the discontinuation of the plant production soon to enter into the respective discussions with the workers’ council. We are aiming for a fair and socially responsible solution for the employees concerned.”
Dyckerhoff GmbH is operating 7 cement plants in Germany, thereof 2 grinding plants and 110 ready-mixed concrete plants.
