Rutronik builds 9,000m2 warehouse to expand its storage and logistics capacities
Truesense Imaging, Inc.
The new warehouse will add 9,000 square metres of floor space, doubling the company’s storage space but also streamlining internal logistics processes through shorter routes and more effective procedures. A goods receipt department as well as a 2-storey administration area for offices and meeting rooms are integrated into the warehouse and order-picking hall. Some 100 additional employees are set to boost the current workforce of 120 at Eisingen. Construction work is due to complete in autumn 2014.
The storage and logistics centre covers approximately 8,600 square metres of storage and order-picking space. In addition, there are three raised storage areas totalling approximately 6,000 square metres. The new facility can accommodate up to 11,000 pallet spaces, some 90,000 standard shelf spaces and an order buffer with approximately 3,000 storage locations. The very latest building and energy technology is integrated to ensure maximum energy efficiency and the roof features a photovoltaic system. The future-proof and sustainable design includes the option of upgrading two concrete ceilings for use for different purposes later on.
"The new building is our gift to us to mark the company’s 40th anniversary. We have a tradition of acting promptly to ensure that we can meet the customer needs of tomorrow and stay one step ahead of the competition," says Thomas Rudel, Chairman of the Executive Management at Rutronik. "Due to our continuous above-average growth to date and our global orientation since 2010, we have reached the capacity limits of our existing premises. To create space for future growth, we have decided to make this significant investment”.
