Karl Mayer Upgrades Development And Logistics Operations

Germany-based Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH plans to invest some 23 million euros to upgrade the logistics and product development operations at its headquarters in Obertshausen. The upgrades are being carried out as two separate projects and involve the redesign of existing areas within its headquarters facilities. Completion of the logistics project is anticipated by the end of August 2006, and that of the product development project by the end of March 2007.

In its new logistics center, the company will reorganize its supply inventory and storage facilities and consolidate them in two halls that formerly housed production operations in order to reduce time to market, inventory volume and related storage costs; as well as to increase automation levels.

The company also is building an innovations center in two other halls, where it will locate all development and construction staff as well as a machine showroom. This area will feature high-tech architecture and a traditional glass roof, and will symbolize the relationship between tradition and innovation, according to Karl Mayer.
