Construction of the new 10,000 sqm-large logistics facility to be completed by autumn 2020
Greven, 24. July 2020. Fiege has started developing a new logistics centre for Döllken Profiles, the leading manufacturer of quality skirting boards of hardwearing plastics. The 10,000 sqm-large warehouses located in Bönen in Westphalia, in immediate proximity to Döllken Profiles’ production site, are to be completed by the end of 2020. Fiege Real Estate is devising the new logistics property together with Döllken Profiles – Fiege is even in charge of planning the company’s intra-logistics.
“Centralising supply chain operations means that transportation activities will no longer be needed on a significant scale while making a positive contribution to protecting the environment. Also, it allows us to respond faster and more flexibly to our clients’ wishes”, Hartwig Schwab, CEO of Döllken Profiles GmbH says. Following the construction of the new warehouse, Döllken Profiles will also expand the production areas in Bönen by around 4,000 square metres to create additional capacities for the manufacture of skirtings, technical profiles and LED strips. At 11 million euros, this expansion is Döllken Profiles’ biggest investment project to date.
“Ongoing operations at the production site are to be interfered with as little as possible. That is quite a challenge”, Jan Fiege, Managing Director Fiege Real Estate says. “Our planning specifies that we implement the project together with the project participants in less than one year.” As the project controller, Fiege planned the new logistics property, obtained the necessary authorisations, devised a fire safety concept and is now masterminding the smooth cooperation of the various trades. The construction company Goldbeck as the general contractor and the engineering firm Klußmann are partners involved in the project.
