As already announced at the end of last year, Grünbeck will continue to invest in the Höchstädt site and thus consistently expand the company. In addition, this will not only secure jobs, but also expand them.
The construction work for the first phase of the logistics center for incoming goods - consisting of the head building as well as three hall areas - will take around six months. The complete building with a usable area of around 5,600 square meters is scheduled to be ready for operation at the beginning of 2023. Investments of around 15 million euros are planned for this. A further three bays will be added in the following years.
Offices for logistics and quality control of incoming deliveries are planned in the new building, as well as photovoltaic systems on the roof. Instead of the current two loading ramps, there will be five in the future. An automated small parts warehouse will also be integrated.
"We are pleased that today's groundbreaking ceremony marks the beginning of the implementation of our plant development concept," said Grünbeck Managing Director Dr. Günter Stoll. "With the starting signal for the construction of the new logistics center for incoming goods, we are laying the foundation for further solid growth."
