Enhanced customer service levels are being claimed for the new Supply Unit in Butzbach, near Frankfurt, Germany.
The European Supply Unit (ESU) will be able to assemble products locally, package and ship directly to customers. The logistic chain for customers in Germany and Europe will be improved thanks to its central location and ability to configure a wide range of products on receipt of order.
“This will enable us to provide better service for our customers in Germany, Europe and South America. We are moving the warehouse from Belgium to Germany and also setting up all the assembly and infrastructure needed for the final stages of the production process”, says Uwe Nickel – Operations Manager.
Piab have employed 7 extra people to initially staff the new facilities in Butzbach.
The new supply unit will open on the 4th of October 2011.
