Weber Maschinenbau is investing almost ten million Euro in extensive structural expansion and technical modernization of its Neubrandenburg site. The construction of new production, storage, and logistics areas, as well as the implementation of a modern storage system are part of the project. Last week marked the official start of the construction project as the mayor of Neubrandenburg, Silvio Witt, and representatives of the building authority officially presented the building permit to Weber Maschinenbau's founder, Günther Weber, and Robert Schwabe, Weber's General Manager and Head of Purchasing.
The globally active company plans several expansions in various areas. The expansions are vital to increase capacity as customer orders are continuing to grow. The construction's first phase will be the completion of an approximately 3,200 square meters logistics center. The increased storage capacity and centralization of the entire warehouse logistics as a result of the expansion, lead to optimizing Weber's internal supply chain. The implementation of the new, highly automated Autostore warehouse system will additionally lead to considerable improvements of daily operations. Examples include increased commissioning speed, high system reliability and availability, as well as maximum space and area utilization. An expansion of the existing halls 5 and 6 on the Weber factory premises is planned as a second construction phase. This is where the machining and sheet metal construction production areas are located. Similar to the logistics improvements, increasing capacities is vital for the ability to expand in the future and to keep up with growing order volumes. As the Weber Group's main production site the plant in Neubrandenburg plays a particularly important role.
