Double ground-breaking

Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG has kicked off two new building projects at once: The green light for construction of the new logistics center was given at the parent company in Laupheim, while Kässbohrer Schweiz AG celebrated the ground-breaking ceremony for its new headquarters in Altdorf. New location for the Swiss headquarters in Altdorf, Canton of Uri Kässbohrer Schweiz AG relocates: After being in Möriken for more than 18 years, the new headquarters of the Swiss subsidiary will be in Altdorf. Nearly all of the approximately 30 employees from the areas of management, sales, administration and technical customer service are now moving to Altdorf. The new location provides the big advantage of being even closer to the majority of ski resorts and being able to reach 70% of all customers with a travel time of less than three hours. More space for all departments The space for offices, warehouse, workshop and training classrooms are spread over four floors. Great value was put on optimizing all of the company areas during planning of the new building. At the same time, the structures, communications areas and organizational workflows have been revised so that we can continue to be successful in the Swiss market in the future. Completion is planned for the autumn of 2019, right in time for the beginning of the 2019/20 winter season.  Facts about the new building in Altdorf, Switzerland:

Ground-breaking ceremony in Laupheim – Green light for building the new logistics center A useful area of 6000 square meters, including 300 square meters of office space, is connected directly to the existing warehouse. This area provides enough space for state-of-the-art automation technology, such as an automated small hardware and high-bay storage unit. Consequently, the new logistics center ensures optimum flow of goods in the entire logistics and production process (acceptance of goods, delivery to the production spaces as well as spare part picking). Outplaced stock is also to be relocated here. The space requirement became necessary due to the continuous growth of business. In 2017 the company opened its new customer center in Laupheim. These substantial investments indicate the company's solid and strong development and make a clear statement to the economic location of Germany and Baden-Württemberg. Customers, employees and suppliers can depend on Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG as a reliable partner in the future, too.  Facts about the logistics center in Laupheim:
