Recaro breaks ground on logistics center

Recaro Aircraft Seating is investing €13.5 million (US$15 million) in its headquarters in Schwaebisch Hall for construction of a 6,000 square meter logistics center.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion occurred November 24. The logistics center will be ready by the end of 2017.

“This investment clearly acknowledges our commitment to the Schwaebisch Hall location and represents a milestone in our company development,” said Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder at Recaro Aircraft Seating, on the occasion of the official start of construction. “This will enable us to meet the requirements of our accelerated growth and the growing number of employees. In the current year alone, we have recruited 55 new employees. The resulting logistics center with a warehouse for 1,400 finished seats also enables us to operate more efficiently, to offer even better services and to enhance the overall service we provide to our customers.”

At the end of next year, the new logistics center will have an automatic high-rack warehouse and will accommodate nearly 3,200 pallets and more than 39,000 containers in its small-parts warehouse. Additionally, truck access to the logistics center will be redesigned and the recycling depot will be expanded.
