SSI Schaefer has started work on a 4,500 sq m test and technology centre in Giebelstadt, Germany where it will develop new technologies and hold its automation conventions.
The building will also incorporate a show room to present new products and serve as a display area for all divisions of the company.
Harrie Swinkels, joint managing director for Schaefer Noell, said: “The new test and technology centre will enable us to concentrate company-wide innovation and to make the development of market-driven systems more transparent to our customers.
“This way we are meeting our customers’ growing demand for information and are able to give them the possibility to experience modern components of intralogistics first hand.”
The centre is expected to be complete by the end of summer.
