SGL Carbon to build central logistics centre

SGL Carbon is building a central, state-of-the-art logistics centre at its site in Meitingen, near Augsburg, for the effective and efficient handling of all incoming and outgoing goods. A building with a logistics area of around 6000 square metres and an office space of around 500 square metres will be constructed on the northern border of the site by July 2019.

The company is investing a total of EUR 8 million in this project. In addition to SGL Carbon, Brembo SGL Carbon Brakes (BSCCB) will be one of the main users.

Four variable dock levelers plus a ground-level loading and unloading system will regulate incoming and outgoing goods. The building will also be home to quality assurance for the inspection of incoming goods. This interaction allows to even better fulfil the high-quality standards, particularly in the automotive industry, the company reports.

At the diversified site in Meitingen, logistics processes have become a key driver for implementing Industry 4.0, the manufacturer explains. The exchange of goods between our production facilities and the new logistics centre will be operated via a digital central transport control system. In addition, mobile and ergonomic workstation systems as well as state-of-the-art scanning technology will be used in the logistics centre.

“As new SGL with a focus on our customers, state-of-the-art, efficient and effective logistics are essential in the innovative and fast-growing areas of mobility, energy and digitization. Our new logistics centre is not just another investment at the Meitingen site, it is a sign that SGL Carbon is positioning itself for the future and for sustainable and profitable growth,” commented Dr Jürgen Köhler, CEO of SGL Carbon.

District Administrator Martin Sailer and the Mayor of Meitingen, Dr Michael Higl, as well as representatives of the general planning company i.CG Innovations Consultations and the construction company Goldbeck Süd, were present at the cornerstone ceremony yesterday afternoon.
