Pöttinger reckons it is setting a new standard in terms of efficiency and flexibility with the opening of a new €14 million spare parts logistics centre. Built on a 3ha site at Taufkirchen an der Trattnach – close to the company’s Austrian HQ at Grieskirchen, the new state-of-the-art 7,000m² spare parts centre is the logistics hub for dispatching consignments worldwide.

It contains a fully automated small parts warehouse with 31,000 bins as well as a mechanised pallet rack system with 5,500 pallets and spaces for 2,200 bulky articles. A total of around 50,000 original spares and wear parts – from the smallest gasket through to complete implement frames – are kept in stock. Up to 800 customer orders will be processed every day and 3.5 million different articles dispatched a year.
