Stoelzle Glass has celebrated the opening of a €5.5million logistics centre at its Częstochowa, Poland production site.

The project was competed in seven months and was inaugurated earlier this week.

Stoelzle Częstochowa CEO, Artur Wołoszyn, said: “Our new logistics centre is the largest and most modern facility of its kind in the region of Częstochowa and also within our Stoelzle network.

“On an area of 20,400m² we will now be able to store more than 50,000 pallets and handle truck loading utmost efficiently via 10 ramps, two loading docks, and a loading gate."

The logistics centre uses an automated lighting system based on both dusk and motion sensors to ensure higher safety standards.

The roof of the building has been adapted for the installation of photovoltaic panels in order to be more sustainable from an energy point of view.

The warehouse will improve the efficiency and safety of the manufactured products, and allow Stoelzle to meet the increased demands for glass packaging.

Mr August Grupp, Head of Business Unit Spirits Stoelzle Glass Group, confirmed a forthcoming €40 million investment comprising a furnace rebuild and expansion, as well as the modernisation of several production lines in mid-2022.
