Frickenhausen, 14 June 2018 – On 15 June 2018, the Greiner Group marked its 150th anniversary with a „Global Day“. Across different cultures and time zones, employees at all the sites came together to celebrate the company“s successful history. What began in Nürtingen in 1868 with the foundation of a small general store by Carl Albert Greiner and his wife Emilie is today a globally successful family business with over 10,000 employees in 34 countries. The Greiner Group, whose headquarters are now in Kremsmünster, Austria, is made up of a number of internationally successful companies – Greiner Packaging International GmbH, a major manufacturer of plastic packaging in the food and non-food sectors; Greiner Foam International GmbH, which produces special foams; Greiner Extrusion Group, a leading supplier of extrusion lines and tooling; and Greiner Bio-One GmbH, which specialises in the development, production and sale of high-quality plastic laboratory products. The BioScience division of Greiner Bio-One ranks among the leading providers of specialist products for the cultivation and analysis of cell and tissue cultures. The German headquarters of the BioScience division, which oversees development, manufacturing and sales operations, are in Frickenhausen, Baden-Württemberg.

Major infrastructure project: high-bay warehouse completed on schedule
On 15 June, a big summer party was held at the Frickenhausen site with all the employees and their families. „On that day, we won“t just be able to look back at our achievements to date but will also be looking very optimistically towards the future,“ explained Managing Director Heinz Schmid in the run-up to the event. „Our new high-bay warehouse is a visible symbol of the dynamic development that still lies ahead for Greiner Bio-One as part of the Greiner Group – development that is certain to continue for another 150 years.“

This new warehouse was taken into operation as planned in April 2018 following a construction period of just one year. The 29-metre-high building replaces the previous high-bay warehouse and is part of an extensive infrastructure project that also includes plans for developing additional production space. Greiner Bio-One is investing a total of over eleven million euros in the Frickenhausen site to improve the plant infrastructure, material supply and logistics and expand its production capacity. In the next two years, the production areas will be expanded by a third to a total of 5,200 square metres. The addition of 14 more plant areas will then bring the total number to 61. There are also plans to increase headcount from the current level of around 330 by creating 40 new jobs over the next few years.

Frickenhausen, 27 April 2017 – Greiner Bio-One GmbH is constructing a new high-bay warehouse at its home base in Frickenhausen. The new 29-metre-high construction will replace the current high-bay warehouse, which is no longer capable of dealing with the greatly increased warehouse technology and capacity requirements. The building is part of an infrastructure project that also includes plans for developing additional production space. The ground-breaking ceremony for the new high-bay warehouse was held today, Thursday, and it is scheduled for completion in April 2018.

Five times faster – more than twice as much space
Greiner Bio-One specialises in the development, production and sale of high-quality plastic laboratory products. Its 1980s high-bay warehouse was no longer able to keep pace with the dynamic growth the company has undergone in the last few years. It was close to full capacity at times, and stock had to be stored at other sites. The new building will double the number of pallet spaces to more than 12,000. With a volume of 70,000 cubic metres, there is – theoretically – easily space to park 7,000 compact cars in the building.

Warehouse technology has evolved radically in recent decades. The digital revolution is also driving a technological transformation. This alone made a modernisation of the facility inevitable. The new fully-automatic high-bay warehouse will improve material flows and productivity in logistics. It will in future be possible to move five times as much material in and out of storage in the same period of time.

Major infrastructure project launches
However, the company is not only investing in the plant infrastructure to improve material supply and logistics, it is also significantly expanding its production capacity at the same time. In the next two years, for example, the production areas at the Frickenhausen site will be expanded by a third to a total of 5,200 square metres. The addition of 14 more system positions will then bring the total number to 61. The next few years will also see a further 40 employees added to the existing staff of 330. All in all, the company is investing more than eleven million euros in the comprehensive renovation of the Frickenhausen site.

Clear commitment to Germany as an industrial location
„Efficient logistics and production are more than an investment in competitiveness for us,“ CEO Heinz Schmid explained at the ground-breaking ceremony for the new high-bay warehouse. „Systematically expanding the site is also a promise to our customers that we will continue manufacturing high-quality products „Made in Germany“ at this site.“ The whole project therefore represents a clear commitment to Germany as an industrial location on the part of Greiner Bio- One.
