Automated high-bay warehouse with 30,000 storage locations, order picking buffer with electric overhead conveyors, automatic conveyor and lifting technology and auto-store system for compacts, SAP S4 with EWM Warehouse Management, automatic storage of C-parts. What reads like something out of the catalogue of modern intralogistics are just some of the elements of DAW SE's new logistics centre in Ober-Ramstadt. On 7 July, students of the degree courses Logistics Management, Industrial Engineering and Management and Master of Business Administration with specialisation in Logistics had the opportunity to take a look at these technical highlights on site.
With an experience of more than 125 years in the field of paint and coating systems, the family-owned company DAW SE (Deutsche Amphibolin Werke) with its headquarters in Ober-Ramstadt is the largest private manufacturer of building paints in Europe and has well-known brands such as Caparol or Alpina in its product range. "For DAW, sustainability and the careful use of resources are important cornerstones of corporate policy. This requires not least efficient logistics processes. For this reason we started building our new logistics centre in 2020". With this message, Theresa Dingeldein, Manager Recruiting, welcomed all participants. In the new logistics centre, incoming and outgoing goods, logistics and warehouse will be combined in three new buildings in the future.
"Many projects are in the middle of the hot and stressful project phase. We were all the more delighted that Florian Schallmayer-Kärtner and his colleagues took the time to make this visit possible for us. That cannot be taken for granted," say Prof. Monika Futschik and Prof. Johanna Bucerius.
