Production has commenced full tilt at the new Jungheinrich plant for warehouse and system equipment at Degernpoint. The facility manufactures vehicles in premium Jungheinrich quality-with highly competitive delivery times.
Inaugurated in autumn 2013, located in the industrial estate of Degernpoint in direct proximity to the main factory in Moosburg, the new facility represents the world's most modern plant for warehouse and system equipment. This is where the "major-sized" Jungheinrich stackers like the EFX, EKX, ETX high-rack forklifts as well as the EKS order picker series are produced. Featuring state-of-the-art structures and processes, the new facility provides for the ideal production conditions. "This plant allows us to produce our warehouse and system equipment with enormous efficiency and sustainability," explains Richard Brandstetter, Managing Director of Jungheinrich Logistiksysteme GmbH. "As the market leader in Europe, our clients benefit from premium Jungheinrich quality and short delivery times. Especially in times in which warehouse sizes as well as throughput rates continue to grow, this is an essential sales argument for our clients."
With floor space of over 23,000 square metres, the Degernpoint plant has an annual production capacity of more than 3,000 warehouse and system trucks. The new production facility constitutes an investment of 40 million euros by the Jungheinrich group, which is now manufacturing narrow-aisle trucks at the world's largest state-of-the-art plant. A total of 300 staff members are currently employed at the Degernpoint location, which produces for a global market. The plant expansion became necessary after the main factory in Moosburg had reached the limits of its capacity.
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, logistics systems, services and advice.
