mbw®: New headquarters with ecological accents
Wanderup near Flensburg in northern Germany has been the home of mbw®, a manufacturer of popular advertising media with a guaranteed smile, since it was founded in 1980. Over the past four decades, mbw® has developed into a national and international company firmly anchored in the promotional product market with its quality brands. Following a few alterations, renovations and steady growth, the premises on Tarper Straße had gradually reached its limits over the past few years. At the end of August 2019, the company moved into a modern office building which includes a picking and storage hall. The new headquarters of mbw® at the Wanderup business park, about 1 km away, was completed after only 7 months of construction.
The adjoining order picking hall uses a state-of-the-art, automatic storage system (AutoStore®). The robotic system will reduce picking times and deliver the required items directly to designated distribution points to further optimise delivery times. The logistics hall with approx. 4,000 pallet spaces, which is 6 km away in Eggebek, will continue to serve as an external and supply warehouse.
The new company building in Wanderup is all about efficiency and sustainability: By installing the AutoStore® with a capacity of approx. 13,000 storage containers, the available space will be optimally used. Lighting of the entire building and the grounds will be provided exclusively with LED bulbs. The heating system is an energy-saving air source heat pump. In late summer, an approx. 2,000 m² wildflower meadow will be created on the adjoining extension area, creating habitats for plants and insects. www.mbw.sh
