Würfel builds another warehouse for a prestigious synthetic tank manufacturer
Final installation and just-in-sequence supply of tank systems for automotive production – space of 2,000 sqm already fully utilised
The Würfel Group’s Logistics business line has built a new warehouse on a surface area, already fully utilised, of 2,000 sqm for a prestigious synthetic tank manufacturer based in Mahndorf (Bremen). The project was completed within a space of 10 months. Würfel has assumed the final installation at the Bremen location on behalf of its customer, along with the just-in-sequence supply of tank systems for the automotive production of a neighbouring automotive manufacturer. “Extending the warehouse capacities in the context of specific projects is part of our customer-centric strategy that is aligned to close and long-term partnerships,” explains Hans-Jürgen Schlausch, Managing Director of Würfel Holding GmbH. The Würfel Group celebrated its 75th anniversary last year.
The new building has two ground-level gates and an effective height of 7.50m. Emphasis was placed on ecological criteria at the planning and construction stages. Surface drainage, for instance, happens naturally through a trench system dug into the ground. The rainwater collects in hollows and is transported from there over the ground in a trench filled with gravel. The water then seeps from this temporary storage into the earth and flows back into the groundwater. The ground above with its vegetation acts as a filter. A highly efficient gas central heating with six individual heating systems ensures a pleasant work environment.
Logistics is one of the business areas of Würfel Holding which is expanding particularly rapidly. A growing number of customers from industry and trade are discovering the advantages of outsourcing part of their production and shipment processes to a flexible logistics partner. The Würfel Group provides extensive services at 17 locations aimed at optimising complex logistics chains. The portfolio ranges from procurement through to production and distribution and on to after sales.
