HOLMER LOGISTICS CENTER NEW CONSTRUCTION
The new HOLMER company premises in Schierling, near Regensburg, and is 140,000 square meters (34.6 acres) in size. Here, just 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) from the previous location in Eggmühl, the company is repositioning itself for the future. The first construction phase was the logistics center; the investment amounts to around 10 million euros (1.1 million USD). The official ground-breaking ceremony took place on July 28, 2017. HOLMER Managing Director Wolfgang Bergmann is delighted with the new facilities: "Our logistics center is perfectly located here. Our approx. 40 employees in the logistics area has an optimal working environment, which is designed mainly for our very large spare parts department. The new center also means our customers benefit from even faster service through improved processes and higher efficiency. We are building up our new location here with heart, soul and passion".
Around 40,000 different articles are stored in the HOLMER spare parts warehouse; HOLMER ships around one million parts all over the world every year. With approx. 7,500 square meters (80,700 square feet) of building space, the new logistics center offers sufficient area for all spare parts. With HOLMER being the world market leader in sugar beet harvesting technology, these parts are shipped anywhere from China all the way to Chile. Including the awnings and the loading docks, the logistics center covers a total of 9,500 square meters (102,220 square feet), plus parking and open areas.
The move from the rented facilities in Regensburg to the new warehouse in Schierling began on March 5, 2018. With the commitment of the logistics team and support of other departments and employees from the HOLMER subsidiaries, the move was completed on March 15, 2018, far ahead of schedule.
Since March 19, 2018, all HOLMER spare parts have been shipped from the new warehouse in Schierling all over the world.
On June 12, 2018, the opening ceremony was held for the new HOLMER logistics center in Schierling.
After only a short time, the new logistics center was not only a shipping hub but also used as a backdrop for film shoots, an event venue, and a training center - and the Bavarian Minister of Agriculture, Michaela Kaniber, was also on hand to visit.
