LÜBBECKE, GERMANY — IMA Schelling Germany, a single-source provider of sales, service and support of IMA and Schelling machinery and software, is expanding its logistics capacity with the construction of a new central warehouse at its headquarters in Lübbecke, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
“The expansion of the logistics center will enable us to increase efficiencies to better serve our customers," explained Dietrich Warkentin, head of materials management for IMA Schelling Germany. “In the near future, machine parts, small parts and complete assemblies also will be available for production.” The new 43,000+ square-foot central warehouse will have enough capacity for about 5,000 pallets and 16 lifts.
Demolition of the old IMA Schelling administration building on Langekamp Street began in mid-October to make room for the construction of the new building. Installation is scheduled to begin in March 2020. The new logistics center is scheduled to be completed by August 2020. In addition to the logistics center in Lübbecke, IMA Schelling Group has a US office located in Morrisville, NC, that provides sales, training, service and parts for the American market.
