With an investment in the double-digit million range, the Service and Logistics Centre in Courmelles was completed in 2011 on a 7,3 hectare site, with a building of 18,000 square metres. The location was designed so as to ensure optimal customer service, from the storage of the raw profiles to their finishing and rebate assembly right through to dispatch. The aim was to reduce the length of time between order and delivery, irrespective of the type of order or required profile colour.
The six halls, in which all the industrial and logistical operations take place, are laid out in a logical sequence so that the successive work steps can be carried out in a timely basis. The different areas of activity are brought together in one central location:
- Goods-in hall for raw profiles
- Automated high-capacity warehouse (4,400 storage spaces distributed over two side wings with honeycomb storage, with a height of 25 m)
- Coating line (2 cabins for powder coating)
- Crimping, packing and dispatch
The location is certified in accordance with ISO 14001, Qualicoat and Qualimarine.
Another logistics centre is located in Bonneuil-sur-Marne, a small town near Paris. With a surface area of 4,000 square metres, it has 3,400 available storage spaces for seals, fittings and accessories.
