Refresco has opened a new €20 million high-bay warehouse at its production site in Calvörde, Germany.
The new facility has a total capacity of over 41,000 pallet spaces, becoming Refresco’s largest fully automated warehouse.
Refresco said the warehouse is of “strategic importance” for future production and logistics at the site. In addition, the fully automated logistics system is expected to enhance occupational safety.
With the investment, the company expects to improve the efficiency of both the production environment and the transportation of finished products. The warehouse will enable Refresco to continue to grow and acquire new business.
Till Alvermann, managing director at Refresco Germany, said: “The new high-bay warehouse is a milestone for us and makes this one of Refresco’s most advanced locations worldwide. Among other things, the complete automation of our logistical handling allows us to load quickly and safely and improves our competitive advantage. We also strengthen the service level for our customers.”
