Lenze extends logistics centre with TGW
As a specialist in drive and automation technology, Lenze offers solutions concerning electric and mechanic drive technology, connection technology and installation engineering. Lenze Austria Holding employs 300 employees and generates a revenue of more than 100 million Euros. 200 of the employees are engaged at the site in Asten.
Lenze's double-digit growth rates previous to the economic crisis should be achieved again and the company's development proves that this is soon possible: Lenze returns from the crisis with significant growth. The growth is obviously visible in the order situation. The capacity of the Asten site is going to be doubled due to the building of the new logistics centre, the customer benefit is growing considerably. "Our new Lenze logistics centre is the third of its kind in Europe. The extension raises the proximity to our customers substantially", says Marco Gattringer-Ebner, Managing Director of Lenze Operations Austria and Head of the expansion project. "So far, a part of our assemblies and applications had to be done in Germany or France. Starting in autumn 2012, everything can be done in Asten."
Already in 2001, TGW (former Ecolog) was successful as a general contractor for logistics projects for Lenze in Asten, Austria and Ruitz, France. Ten years later, the Asten site is expanded by an assembly and logistics centre.
The project values to approximately 4.3 million Euros and includes a two-crane automated mini-load storage and a three-crane high bay storage solution with 20 meters of height.
Due to fire safety reasons an oxygen-reduction (CA = controlled atmosphere) will be installed in the warehouse. The tote conveyer technology, as well as the pallet conveyor system will be furnished with four pick&pack-zones each, with a connection to paint finish. CI_LOG will be installed as warehouse software, which is going to control all processes in the installation. As control technology the TGW-Commander will be employed; all drives and controllers will be provided by Lenze itself.
