One of Switzerland's biggest milk powder factories is in Sulgen, Canton of Thurgau. HOCHDORF Swiss Nutrition AG can process up to 1.5 million kilograms of fresh milk and whey per day in Sulgen. HOCHDORF Group employs approximately 150 employees at its Sulgen location and sells its products worldwide to over 80 countries.
The company needed additional warehouse space at its Sulgen location to store semi-finished and finished products, additives and packaging material.
Gilgen Logistics was contracted for a pallet conveyor system in separate directions and a connecting tunnel to link its production lines to the new warehouse. The contract furthermore included five lift installations, a pallet stretcher, a warehouse management system and 4 loading stations as well as an outdoor scissor lift.
Only just moved into the new building, the contractor planned an automatic high-bay storage system in which all materials are to be managed, mainly for the site Sulgen. For that, Gilgen Logistics has been commissioned as the general contractor for the automated, turn-key high-bay storage system.
