Donges SteelTec is investing in two new gantry cranes at its Darmstadt site.

Dr. Peter Schäfer, Production Manager of Donges SteelTec GmbH, calls the acquisition of the two new double-girder gantry cranes, which were commissioned on schedule on June 26, “An important investment in the future of our bridge and building construction production”.

The lifting capacity in the former lightweight hall will be increased by the two cranes from 2 * 10 to 4 x 20 tons, so that components with unit weights of up to 80 tons can be produced. The company thus has expanded production capacities for heavy bridge and steel building constructions at its disposal.

The cranes have already successfully passed the first test in the production of the “Stokkumer Straße Emmerich” bridge. The next application will be for the components for the bridge structure “A1 left bank of the Rhine”.


Donges SteelTec participates in Girls’ and Boys’ Day

On March 28, eight students spent a day at Donges SteelTec as part of the nationwide Girls’ and Boys’ Day and gained their first insights into working life.

The young people were first allowed to construct their initials on the computer in our technical office and then later spray the letters burnt out of steel sheets with color according to their own taste. They also got to know the various departments in administration, assembly and our bridge and building construction divisions. For the young people, the day ended with a stay in our production department, where they were able to experience first-hand the production and processing of large steel structures for bridge and building construction projects.

“For many years, we have enjoyed using this day to give interested young people an understanding of the many career opportunities offered by our steel construction company,” commented Joachim Abt, Training Manager at Donges SteelTec.
