Freudenberg Filtration Technologies has officially opened its new logistics center in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Built in partnership with Skipiol Immobilien, the €12 million 12,000 square meter multi-purpose facility serves the packaging and distribution of filters. Six height-adjustable docking stations make it possible to load and unload up to 45 trucks per day. To avoid traffic problems, the new facility has its own truck access.
Around 270 Freudenberg Filtration Technologies employees manufacture micronAir car cabin filters and high-performance synthetic air filters for combustion engines at the Kaiserslautern site.
“The logistics center sends a clear signal about our commitment to Kaiserslautern. And the resulting proximity of production and logistics, ensures we will be able to fulfill customer needs with regard to product availability and flexibility in supply,” says Jorg Sievert, member of the Freudenberg Filtration Technologies board.
Freudenberg has had a presence in Kaiserslautern since 1970 and filters have been manufactured there since 2001.
