The STS Group inaugurated its new logistics centre in Stenungsund
Scandinavian Transmission Service is active within the industrial remanufacturing of transmissions and transmission-related components in Stenungsund, just north of Gothenburg, Sweden. STS Logistics Centre opens its doors just in time for the company’s 45th anniversary. The 10 000 m2 piece of land was purchased in 2013, and the construction of the first warehouse is now complete.
“We are very pleased that we will finally be able to offer our customers core handling services and more efficient warehousing of finished products. In particular, logistic services relating to core handling services have long been requested by our customers, and we used to have limited capacity in this area,” says Ola Stålebo, CEO.
The first step consists of a modern warehouse in a clean line design, constructed with a focus on low energy consumption and minimal environmental impact. The facility is located a stone’s throw from road E6, just a few minutes away from STS’ production plant in Stenungsund.
“According to our estimates, approximately 80% of our capacity will already be used within the next 6 months, so this investment is clearly eagerly awaited. This autumn, we will terminate the lease for our rented external warehousing premises. Our projected growth is strong in the next five years, and many interesting projects are under way, including an investment in manual transmissions division. Thanks to our strong confidence in the market, our plans for the second phase have already progressed far,” Ola Stålebo concludes.
The corporate group is active within the industrial remanufacturing of transmissions and employs 45
people. STS was founded in 1969 in Stenungsund, just north of Gothenburg, Sweden. The STS Group
is currently one of Europe’s major centres for the remanufacturing of automatic transmissions and
