TGW equips industrial manufacturing facilities in Germany

TGW Logistics has announced that it has installed automated warehousing solutions for four industrial manufacturing companies in Germany – ERCO, Hermle, ZITEC and HECO.

To guarantee the functional operability and performance of its automated warehouse for many years to come, architectural lighting specialist ERCO placed an order with TGW for an extensive modernisation of its logistics centre in Lüdenscheid. This included the installation of eight TGW Mustang mini-load machines in the tray warehouse as well as the modernisation of two sortation storage systems and a complex conveyor system.

A second retrofit was carried out for Hermle AG, which manufactures machinery for industry from its headquarters in Gosheim. Similarly Hermle also sought to extend its warehouse capacity to be able to cope with the future demands on its business. In addition to automated materials handling equipment for this project, TGW also provided software and lifetime service support.

ZITEC produces mechanical spare parts for maintenance and engineering. As one of Europe’s leading suppliers, its logistics requirement in relation to storage, order throughput times and picking rates had increased significantly. As a result, the company turned to TGW to implement an automated mini-load storage system at the company’s headquarters in Plattling.

For the fourth project, TGW is working with PSI Logistics to implement a complete storage and order picking solution for German screw manufacturer, HECO at its site in Schramberg. Scheduled to go live in summer 2013, the €3.4m contract covers investment in an automated warehousing solution in addition to a comprehensive service package to ensure long-term functionality of the equipment.

TGW Logistics Group is a leading supplier of highly dynamic, automated logistics solutions for warehousing, production, picking and distribution operations. The company designs, manufactures and installs a complete range of solutions, from small conveyor applications to complex, fully automated storage and retrieval systems.

Headquartered in Wels, Austria, the company has 14 offices on three continents and currently employs around 1,500 people worldwide.

In the financial year 2011/12, the TGW Logistics Group generated revenues of €362.3 million and is committed to continued growth through geographical expansion and investment in new product development.

With a regional office in Market Harborough, in the UK, TGW has designed and installed state-of-the-art, automated warehousing systems for major companies including MS, Kimberly-Clark, Weetabix, Bentley, VOW, Pegler-Yorkshire, and many others.
