Bode-Panzer GmbH Invests in Production and Logistics

Wiesbaden, 25/06/2019. Bode-Panzer GmbH adds yet another chapter to its story of success by investing in its future. The specialist for VDS-certified safe and vault solutions will soon be opening a new central warehouse at its production site in Rajhrad in the Czech Republic, a move that is aimed at optimising the internal logistics processes. Moreover, the company began operating a new Trumpf bending machine back in April, which speeds up the manufacture of single pieces.

“Our excellent business position is making demands on our logistics operations,” explained managing director Frank Steinhardt. “The new central warehouse will enable us to deal more efficiently with the high volume of orders.”
The new central warehouse has an area of more than 900 square metres; at the moment, all purchased parts are stored here, but it will in addition serve as an intermediate warehouse for finished products.

“Bode-Panzer will benefit from the new facility at many different levels,” stated Steinhardt. “The construction of the new warehouse lays the foundation for optimised warehouse management and concurrently the ongoing reconciliation of the target and actual figures for the consumption of materials.”

Bode-Panzer had previously invested in a new bending machine from Trumpf at the beginning of the year, and the successful operational startup of the equipment was in April. It makes the production of single pieces significantly faster and provides automatic measurement of target and actual dimensions. “The machine that was previously used had simply reached the limits of its capacity — especially in terms of the time and effort required for programming it,” according to Steinhardt. In comparison, the intuitive menu navigation of the new bending machine is a convincing feature that makes programming simple and substantially faster.

These new investments are a continuation of the course Bode-Panzer has laid out for its future development. Bode-Panzer has been just as active in this respect in past years, investing in production technology and production sites so that it could meet special customer needs relating to delivery dates and delivery quantities or other demands.

Continuous innovations, an understanding of the many different needs and demands on the markets and far-sighted business acumen and willingness to invest drive us onward.”
