Würth Elektronik eiSos continues to grow: Groundbreaking ceremony for logistics center

With a festive groundbreaking ceremony, the electronic component manufacturer Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG yesterday commenced construction work on its new warehouse and logistics complex at the Waldenburg (Germany) site. The 25 million euro investment in expansion will be concluded by the middle of next year. The construction project is primarily driven by the company's strong growth. At the same time the company is expanding its service offering with the building work. This will mean that instead of 10,000 at present, there will be capacity to deliver over 30,000 products from stock in the future. Subpackaging units and samples will then be sent on their way in a largely automated process. With this and many other value-added services, Würth Elektronik eiSos is consistently simplifying and accelerating logistics processes for its customers.

Fully automated small parts warehouse

The new facilities consist of two building segments. In the three-storey function building, incoming and outgoing goods will be accommodated with a total of 10 loading ramps. The second segment consists of a fully automated small parts warehouse. In the first expansion phase, this so-called shuttle warehouse will comprise six aisles with around 85,000 racking slots on 32 levels.

Following inauguration of the Technology Center in 2012, the logistics expansion is the second new building project within a short time. Both projects reflect the component manufacturer's strong growth and demonstrate how the Waldenburg company is investing in developing its service leadership in the industry.
