Our plant in Leeden, which we acquired in 2007 and has since doubled in size, now has a new look. Our Global Parts Center moved there at the start of the year.

Extensive renovation work and investment was needed prior to the move. "The facility has a significantly extended storage capacity with a warehouse space of approximately 11,000 m² and outdoor space of 9,000 m² for more than 42,000 different spare parts. More than half of the items are kept in an automatic small parts warehouse (ASPW) with approx. 27,000 bins and are stored and retrieved automatically with an extremely high degree of efficiency. The larger items and higher quantities are efficiently managed in the newly designed narrow-aisle warehouse with space for approximately 12,500 mesh crates with state-of-the-art order-picking stackers.

Special care was taken to ensure that the order picking process is not only efficient but also safe and reliable. Although 1,000 packages can be processed per day at the current capacity, it will be possible to increase this number in the future. Many bulky and non-sensitive parts are stored outside in special shelving systems. Incoming and outgoing goods are handled at different stations to ensure that all deliveries are processed smoothly, even at peak times. The system was running reliably and smoothly within a very short time. We would like to thank all the employees involved for their outstanding commitment throughout the move and during the coronavirus pandemic.

WindControl - Calm conditions at the touch of a button

The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer.
