Senior managers and project managers of attended the ceremony together with representatives of the Kirchdorf community as well as the commissioned construction company.

Following completion the new logistics centre for production will have an overall dimension of around 245 x 96 m and a height of about 22 m. In the first construction phase, which should be completed by the end of 2019, a new incoming goods area with a high-bay warehouse is to be built. The planned air lock for lorries with a 20 t crane system will greatly facilitate the acceptance of goods.

In the second stage another high-bay warehouse and logistics areas for order picking, consolidation and packaging are to be erected. The workstations will be set up with modern technical systems and the complex logistics requirements will be supported by a warehouse management system. For day-to-day work modern picking vehicles with a driving assistance system are available to the employees.
