Future builds distribution centre in Leipzig

The Canadian distributor Future Electronics is to build a new European distribution centre in Leipzig, Germany.
The distribution centre, a 15.000 sqm Greenfield solution, will supply manufacturers of the electronics industry all over Europe as well as the Middle East with semi-conductors, passive contact components, LCD displays, wireless transmission media, RFID solution modules and a multitude of other electronic components.

As a general contractor, Witron – who is responsible for the construction work – will be responsible for the design and implementation of all logistical components - IT, control system, conveyor system, and tote and pallet steel construction. The automated small parts warehouse which includes 10 automated storage and retrieval (AS/RS) crane aisles with 255,000 tote and 4,400 pallet locations will be able to store 66,000 different articles.

The daily output of the distribution centre is estimated at 4,200 packages accounting for a total of 18,000 picks per day. The investment of the Witron delivery and performance scope amounts to €20.5 million, whereas the entire investment sum reaches €40 million. Productive use is planned for the beginning of 2010.
