Last Friday the management of the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group opened the new industrial park of the intralogistics manufacturer in the industrial area "Hinter der Mühle" in Sinsheim-Dühren in the presence of Mayor Jörg Albrecht and the representatives of the commissioned general contractor Zapf Gewerbebau.
Just about a year after the ground-breaking ceremony, the new production facility, including office space, was put into operation with an area of 4,000 m2. The continuous growth of GEBHARDT was the decisive factor for the acquisition of an approximately five-hectare area, as the main location in Sinsheim no longer had sufficient open space for further production halls.
In the next few days, the work areas for shuttles, storage and retrieval machines as well as telescopic belt and vertical conveyors will be built there. In the new hall, GEBHARDT focused on innovative industry 4.0 standards and attaches particular importance to networking and digitalisation. For example, internal transports are handled by autonomous, mobile robots, which are also further developed and manufactured in the new production hall.
"In order to continue to guarantee our employees and our customers the best conditions for efficient process flows as well as high quality, the new GEBHARDT Industrial Park was indispensable for us to position ourselves in a future-oriented way and to further expand our growth.", says Marco Gebhardt, Managing Director of the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group.
"The company GEBHARDT is an extremely important employer for our city and a company that makes us proud. The extension in direct proximity to the motorway strengthens the industrial location Sinsheim. I am very grateful for this. My special thanks go to the managing directors Fritz and Marco Gebhardt. I wish them further success for the future.", says Mayor Jörg Albrecht.
Gerardo De Gioia (architect) and Thomas Walter (construction manager) of Zapf Gewerbebau GmbH, add: "Smart design in a prominent position and rooms where people like to work. A demanding task in this special Covid year. Within twelve months, this claim was realised by and with us. We would like to thank the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group, also on behalf of our team, for the trust placed in us.”
