Responding to customer growth: Location expansion at the Kemnath site
The order volume of our customers is growing steadily. We at Simon Hegele are responding to this with an expanded location. To meet the needs of our healthcare customers at the Kemnath site for highly specialized logistics services, we are expanding our logistics center in the region “Oberpfalz” by 20,000 square meters. This is the second expansion of the site, as we already doubled our on-site capacity just two years after it opened in 2004.
Investment in high-performance
For our customers, the expansion means more space for their growth, for us it is an investment into the future. The Kemnath region is looking forward to up to 100 additional jobs, made possible by this site expansion in the Kemnath II industrial park. The new colleagues will continuously support the existing 200-people team in the day-to-day business, so that the high performance for our customers will also be secured in the future.
New building for greater sustainability
Alongside the 20,000 square meters of warehouse space that will be created by the end of 2022, we are also planning to create almost 20,000 square meters of green space on site to balance out natural resources. In addition, a high-performance photovoltaic system will enable us to manage the new building as sustainable as possible.
Mike Winter, managing shareholder of Simon Hegele, finds apt words: "The expansion of our site in Kemnath is essential. We are proud to be able to promote economic growth in this region and thus to offer our customers further services tailored to their individual needs."
We are already looking forward to the expansion and to be filling the new location near our existing building in Kemnath with life for our customers - true to our promise: WE MAKE HEALTHCARE WORK.
