“Important milestone for competitiveness and sustainability”
Radevormwald, 6 October 2018. “Everything on a single level with ideal flow of goods – from incoming goods to assembly to outgoing goods, with very powerful picking-and-packing and warehouse logistics inbetween. And a development centre on a single level on the roof of the assembly area, instead of divided across several floors. What a difference this makes!” At this Saturday's inauguration of Gira's new production, development, and logistics centre, Dirk Giersiepen, the managing partner of Gira Giersiepen GmbH & Co. KG (www.gira.com), couldn't hide his excitement when he summarized the large project to the 1,200 guests. The SME from the Bergisches Land region has invested many tens of millions of euros in the construction of the new building on the greenfield and to equip it with cutting-edge systems technology – the largest investment in the company's 113-year history. Around 550 employees of the building technology specialist will work here from the spring of 2019.
