Extension to central logistics centre
One of our company's success factors is the central logistics centre in Marienheide. It guarantees reliable deliveries to all PFERD customers world-wide thanks to the latest in warehouse technology.
In 1990, the foundation stone was laid for the new development of a logistics centre in the main Marienheide plant. It went into operation in 1991. The concept of centralising logistics processes was very successful and profitable for PFERD right from the word go. The first extension became necessary as soon as 1996. Further extensions were added in 2004 and 2007.
Optimum pre-conditions for global logistics
Today, around 900 orders (containing about 3,700 positions) are dispatched every day from the logistics centre in the Marienheide plant. Every day, around 45 tonnes of PFERD tools are taken from the warehouse and packed ready for dispatch. The goods are sent to our customers in Germany and neighbouring countries within 24 hours. In Europe mainly within 48 hours. With this building and extensions, the company management gave a sign to all employees and those responsible in the region that the Marienheide site is being strengthened, developed and thus secured for the future.
