Cube Bikes Expands Logistics Center
WALDERSHOF, Germany – On November 15 German Cube Bikes celebrated the opening of its new expanded logistics building at the company’s HQ in Waldershof. Cube invested about 10 million euro in the new hall.
Cube founder and GM Marcus Pürner used the official opening to look back on the company’s history that started 19 years ago. “In those days we never thought about becoming one of the leading brands in Europe. And two years ago we even didn’t realize that today we are here to inaugurate a new hall.”
Doubled in space
The new hall measures 7,200 square meters. Cube almost doubles its existing logistics center with it. The additional building includes a storage space for 6,500 pallets filled with bicycle components which was highly needed. It also offers possibilities to optimize logistic procedures as the new hall makes it possible to handle 700 freight containers per year in Waldershof.
At the end of 2012 Cube Bikes will have produced a total of 320,000 bikes. The company has a workforce of about 300. Cube offers a line-up of about 170 different models which are being sold in more than 40 countries. For 2013 Pürner and his team expects to sell significantly more Cube bikes, as he recently said in the local German press.
