Breaking-Ground ceremony for the new plant of the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group GmbH & Co. KG in Germany

Last week saw the start the construction work for the nearly 4,000 m² large industrial park of the GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group GmbH & Co. KG. Here, a new factory hall with integrated office space will be built in the next few months. As general contractor GEBHARDT has commissioned the team of Zapf Gewerbebau from Reihen and the completion of the construction project is planned for September 2020.

Due to the continuous growth of GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group GmbH & Co. KG, several overseas and domestic branches have been opened in recent years. The main location in Sinsheim no longer has sufficient open space for further production halls, which is why GEBHARDT acquired the approximately five hectare site in the industrial area in Sinsheim-Dühren.

“The new GEBHARDT Industrial Park enables us to position ourselves for the future and to continue to guarantee our employees and customers the optimum environment for efficient processes and best quality”, says Marco Gebhardt, Managing Director of GEBHARDT Intralogistics Group GmbH & Co. KG.

The industrial park is located in the immediate vicinity of the main plant and situated close to the Sinsheim south motorway exit. In the future, storage and retrieval machines, warehouse shuttles, mobile robots, the GEBHARDT  ConVer goods lift as well as telescopic belt and vertical conveyors will be produced here.

In the new buildings, GEBHARDT also focuses on innovative industry 4.0 standards and attaches particular importance to connectivity and digitization. For example, in-house transports are carried out by autonomous, mobile robots, which GEBHARDT develops and manufactures on site.

“This spectacular new building directly on the A6 motorway further strengthens the industrial location of Sinsheim”, says Gerardo De Gioia, the chief architect at the general contractor Zapf Gewerbebau.

“It is an exciting project for me and my employees to be able to implement this modern and innovative building concept in such an exposed location”, the co-owner continues.

“With GEBHARDT, we have succeeded in convincing another top company from the region to place the implementation of this demanding construction task in the hands of Zapf Gewerbebau. We wish GEBHARDT success for everything that is coming and are looking forward to working together”.
