Sustainability in new dimensions.

In Schorndorf, on the former Bauknecht site, the electrotechnical wholesale company Löffelhardt has moved into one of the most modern fully automated logistics centers in Germany and expanded its space several times over. Former Halls 2 and 3 were completely refurbished and revitalized for energy efficiency on an area of 24,500 square meters. A new building with an area of 9,700 square meters was also added. Visible from a long way off, the striking 27-meter high high-bay warehouse is home to eight storage and retrieval machines, each weighing around eleven tons. The shuttle warehouse with 95,000 bin locations for the standard range and a tray warehouse with 1,700 tray shelves for general cargo with a length of up to three meters complete the logistics center. Contemporary workplaces in logistics and administration offer the more than 300 employees the best working comfort and spur creativity, while a training center rounds off the site. The photovoltaic system covering more than 4,000 square meters on the roof of the former Hall 2 produces so much electricity that the company can be largely self-sufficient.

“Building our new headquarters is the largest investment in our company history. Vollack was our partner in all phases of our project, from the decision to purchase the existing property and the strategic decision-making for the complete relocation, to the concept and design, the integration of the logistics equipment, and the development of the office work environments. Sustainability was also very important to us, and so we wanted to apply the highest KfW standards for new construction and renovation. We succeeded in this thanks to Vollack. We are very happy to have found a company that has accompanied us so competently on this long and important road for Löffelhardt.”
