Construction work begins at Haberkorn

 

The company is investing 20 million euros in the expansion of its logistics facility, which is due for completion in autumn 2019.

Haberkorn has continued to post very good business performance over the past few years. In Austria, the company achieved double-digit growth in sales revenues in 2017. In order to keep pace with this development and pave the way for future growth, Haberkorn is now expanding its logistics capacity.

Logistics capacity to be doubled

Some 20 million euros is to be invested in the building extension at the Wolfurt site. This investment will almost double logistics capacity: in addition to an automatic high-rise warehouse with 10,000 pallet spaces and an automatic small parts warehouse with around 60,000 container spaces, the 27.5-metre-high building will house extended areas for goods inward, goods outward and services. “This expansion will create development opportunities for us in the coming years,” says Christoph Winder, the board member responsible for logistics. The construction work got under way last week and start-up is scheduled for autumn 2019.

The investment marks a clear commitment to Haberkorn’s Vorarlberg site. In future, not only Austria, but also Germany and the Eastern European markets will benefit from delivery services from Wolfurt within 24 hours.
