Kärcher's logistics centre located in Obersontheim, Germany will be extended by end of 2012. Kärcher entrusted TGW with the implementation of the logistics system.

2011-12-10

TGW was entrusted with the realisation of a logistics centre and an extensive material flow control system, as well as with the system visualisation by Kärcher at their site in Obersontheim.

Alfred Kärcher GmbH & Co is the world's market leader for cleaning equipment that sets the benchmark for professional cleaning as well as with consumers. Due to the strong growth of the family business, the site in Obersontheim will be extended by about 20.000 m² floor space. Thus, Kärcher’s storage capacity will be increased remarkably, its output quantity more than doubled.

The order includes a new pallet storage system, an 8-aisle automated mini-load warehouse with 95,000 storage locations used to supply a new high-performance picking area. In order to handle the required performance of up to 2,000 storage and retrieval movements per hour, TGW will be installing its Stingray shuttle system. An extensive tote conveyor system with intelligent empty tote management will connect the storage and picking areas with the packing area.
