Gebhardt breaks ground on new factory in Germany
30 September 2019
The intralogistics manufacturer and integrator has started construction of a 4,000 sq m industrial park.
The factory hall with integrated office space will be built in the next few months.
Due to the continuous growth of Gebhardt Intralogistics Group GmbH & Co. KG, several overseas and domestic branches have been opened in recent years. The main location in Sinsheim no longer has sufficient open space for further production halls, which is why Gebhardt acquired the approximately five hectare site in the industrial area Hinter der Mühle in Sinsheim-Dühren.
“The new Gebhardt Industrial Park enables us to position ourselves for the future and to continue to guarantee our employees and customers the optimum environment for efficient processes and best quality,” says Marco Gebhardt, managing director of Gebhardt Intralogistics Group.
The industrial park is located in the immediate vicinity of the main plant and situated close to the Sinsheim south motorway exit. In the future, storage and retrieval machines, warehouse shuttles, mobile robots, the Gebhardt ConVer goods lift as well as telescopic belt and vertical conveyors will be produced here.
In the new buildings, Gebhardt also focuses on innovative industry 4.0 standards and attaches particular importance to connectivity and digitisation. For example, in-house transports are carried out by autonomous, mobile robots, which Gebhardt develops and manufactures on site.
