SimonsVoss has recently moved into its new production and logistics centre. The new building is no longer located in Petersburg, but in neighbouring Osterfeld, about 20 kilometres away. SimonsVoss invested around six million euros in the new site.
A new manufacturing facility was urgently required since the former site had already reached the limits of its production capacity. The new premises boasts more than 3,650 m² overall and features an incoming goods area, a manufacturing workshop, a warehouse, a shipping department, quality management and an after-sales centre. "We will be even more effective for our clients thanks to greater availability of product variants, shorter delivery times and a faster after-sales service. With the introduction of a warehouse management system, automated warehouse lifts and carousel racks, we will also achieve much faster, much more efficient production," stated operations manager Peter Heimbürge, pleased with the new manufacturing site. "The new plant enables us to double our manufacturing capacity for our digital cylinders, our digital Smart Handle door fittings and Smart Relay. This is another step towards ensuring sustainable growth for our company and expanding our market position," explained Bernhard Sommer, chairman of the Management Board at SimonsVoss Technologies GmbH.
The new SimonsVoss manufacturing and logistics centre is based on a sustainable energy concept to ensure that the ecological footprint is minimal. This requires sparing use of natural resources, the elimination of Caron Dioxide emissions and sustainable structural designs. The SimonsVoss Osterfeld building is thus made almost entirely of wood and heated using energy-saving pellets and floor heating.
