SCHWEINFURT, Germany – To facilitate its growth, the German bicycle manufacturer and P&A distributor, Winora Group doubled its space for offices and logistics. By the end of the year, it will also be the location of the new ‘Center of Excellence for Technology and Design’.
Last weekend, Winora Group finished the second part of the rehousing operation. The new premises offer more space and comfort for the employees to grow the brands Winora, Haibike, Hercules, Staiger and XLC.
“We have expanded our office space from 800 to 2,500 square meters. The warehouse, the assembly areas and the parts logistics areas have also doubled, to 18,000 square meters. We had to expand our facilities to meet the demand of the fast-growing bicycle market,” explained Susanne Puello, CEO of the Winora Group.
Part of the expansion was the construction of a 7,000 square meters logistics center which houses the order picking facilities for the European market. A total of about 50,000 bikes can be stored here on eight different levels.
