Deufol Saint-Nabord: Inauguration of the warehouse expansion. More than one hectare dedicated to medical devices!
In Saint-Nabord Deufol has expanded its warehouse - the French distribution center for Lohmann & Rauscher - with 3000 m2. A good reason to organize a party!
Since 2003, Deufol has been in Saint Nabord with a logistics platform exclusively dedicated to Lohmann and Rauscher. Deufol has recently renewed its partnership with L&R, specializing in medical devices, for a period of 10 years.
This strong and long-lasting relationship has recently enabled Deufol to invest in an extension of nearly 3000 m2, bringing the total surface area of the depot to 11000 m2. This Thursday, elected officials, customers, suppliers and employees of both companies were invited to the visit and inauguration.
This expansion, with a total cost of two million euros, had become necessary to meet the constant growth of the activity. For example, 15 years ago, the platform shipped 165,000 orders annually, while today it handles 325,000. Originally scheduled for commissioning in January, the expansion is already operational since October of last year.
The company now has 5 additional docks that facilitate the flow of goods through the warehouse. It also benefits from the latest technologies such as the "pick to voice" system, electric trolleys that allow several orders to be prepared simultaneously and optimize employee movements, and an automated packaging line that facilitates the work of the packing and shipping department.
Seven hires are expected to result from this expansion, bringing Deufol's workforce to approximately 45 employees.
As a result of an international collaboration between Deufol and Lohmann & Rauscher, this platform has chosen the Vosges department, and its privileged position within Europe to ensure the delivery of products to 80% of pharmacies in France, hospitals but also export customers, especially in the Maghreb countries. A good example of international cooperation.
That's Deufol. We focus on your packaging + supply chain limits and remove them!
