Opening of new production and logistics site
A new Wippermann site was inaugurated in Kirchlengern in September. Optimized production facilities and logistics solutions geared to international markets enable maximum flexibility in terms of production quantities and versions as well as the rapid delivery of our industrial chains.
In the presence of representatives of the Business Development Association and the municipal administration as well as 150 invited guests, the new production and logistics site of Wippermann jr. GmbH Trading was ceremoniously opened in Kirchlengern, Germany.
Managing directors Dr. Stephan Gerber and Christian Hamann as well as branch manager Roger Paul gave the guests an insight into the possibilities and advantages offered by the new location for the processing and packaging of high-quality industrial chains as well as new logistics capacities.
“Due to our consistent growth strategy, the capacities at the previous sites had been exhausted. From the outset, it was clear to us that we would not simply expand, but rather develop a new location that was optimally aligned to meet present and future demands, especially with regard to international markets,” explained Dr. Stephan Gerber regarding the decision to build a new facility. Production, warehouse, shipping and administration are interlinked in optimally coordinated processes on 2,800 square metres of production area. Dr. Gerber: “New machines and the optimized processes give us the chance to significantly extend production quantities and product versions in the future.
Branch Manager Roger Paul explained the significance of integrating the logistics work steps: “For our growing international business with high-quality industrial chains, we need highly efficient processes to serve our customers around the globe quickly and reliably.” From customs declaration through to secure transport packaging, all work steps are perfectly aligned at the new site. “And we have enough space for future expansions,” explained Roger Paul. “With an area of 11,000 square metres, the new site offers plenty of potential in case of need.
