LIEVERTZ, a branch of the Essen-based J.W. Zander GmbH & Co. KG, has moved into its new regional warehouse in Kleve with an associated pick-up market. Approx. 12,000 take-away and storage items for sanitary, heating, electrical and industrial companies are now in stock at the new location of the specialist wholesaler for building technology on Siemensstraße. From this broad spectrum of the stored goods the most different requirements resulted to the new storage equipment, with which LIEVERTZ relied on the competence of the Arnsberg storage specialist META-Regalbau. The aim was an appealing and clear presentation and flexible storage of the most varied article groups.
LIEVERTZ stocks the articles of daily use from the areas of heating, sanitary, air conditioning, lighting, installation requirements, household appliances and alternative energies in the new 2,500 square metre warehouse. In addition to the storage area, the approx. 1,000 square metre office space, which is directly adjacent to the warehouse on the 10,000 square metre site on Siemensstrasse, is also available. In total, the company employs around 45 people at its new location in Kleve.
The move within the city became necessary because the capacities at the old location on Thaerstraße were limited. "Logistically, this is a big step forward," says division manager and authorized signatory Thomas Schmidt, assessing the new location of the company. With the proximity to the A3 and better accessibility, the various goods can be delivered more quickly. The new specialty store and warehouse facilities contribute enormously to a better flow of goods. "The reactions to the new warehouse concept are very positive. The simpler ways and the more pleasant work are repeatedly addressed by our customers and employees", explains Thomas Schmidt.
