Hamburg—Jungheinrich plans to build a new spare parts centre north of Hamburg. In so doing, the company aims to do justice above all to its international expansion, the growth of its assortment (spare parts) resulting from its enlarged truck portfolio as well as to mounting demands placed on its sales organization and dealer business.
Work on constructing the spare parts centre, which will be based on a new logistics concept, is scheduled to begin in the autumn of this year and should be completed by the end of 2013. The capex budget totals about 35 million euros. “This forward-looking investment in a new central warehouse and optimized spare parts management will ensure that we can ship parts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year—an important asset in making our spare parts logistics even faster and more efficient. It is key to ensuring that our customers are satisfied and will lastingly strengthen our company’s growth,” says Hans-Georg Frey, Chairman of the Board of Management of Jungheinrich AG.
Jungheinrich’s current spare parts logistics network is based on three warehouses: Norderstedt/Germany (since 1984), Lahr in southern Baden/Germany (since 2001) and Bratislava/Slovakia (since 2007). Based on the spare parts volume forecast, their capacities will be exhausted by 2014. Extensive fact-finding has shown that it is impossible to increase capacity at the existing sites in order to meet future requirements. The present spare parts warehouse and management will thus be transferred from the Norderstedt site to the new spare parts centre. The relocation will affect approximately 230 employees, who will be given safe jobs at the new location.
Jungheinrich ranks among the world’s leading companies in the material handling equipment, warehousing and material flow engineering sectors. The company is an intralogistics service and solution provider with manufacturing operations, which offers its customers a comprehensive range of forklift trucks, shelving systems, services and advice. Jungheinrich shares are traded on all German stock exchanges.
