In order to further optimize the material provision and to strengthen the internal processes for the Oerlikon Neumag and Oerlikon Nonwoven business units at the German site in Neumünster, the Manmade Fibers segment of the technology group Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland, has decided to invest in a state-of-the-art logistics center with a new lift center.
This is helpful for speeding up the processing of the numerous orders for meltblown systems for manufacturing nonwovens for protective masks and apparel that Oerlikon Nonwoven has received over the past months alone.
The processing speed when manufacturing new systems improved in the first weeks as a result to the optimized processes. The new logistics center offers more than 250 m² for 25,000 parts. This also houses all small parts which used to be stored in the high-rack facility due to lack of space.
Coinciding with the opening of the new logistics center, Oerlikon also introduced digital processes that will also cope with the increasing production volumes.
