December 2017

THANK-YOU for your trusting cooperation


When the year draws to an end, it is time for a brief look back at what one has accomplished. For Gilgen Logistics, it was an exciting year that was both busy with work and successful.

We are very proud that in 2017 we were again able to record some major orders. Also current projects in the implementation phase are progressing well, such as the largest logistics center in Europe, for which we were assigned as General Contractor. The fully automatic high-bay warehouse is designed for more than 50'000 pallet spaces.

Currently we are realizing other interesting projects; e.g. the extension of the deep-freeze warehouse for Kühlhaus Neuhof AG, a roller conveyor system for the REWE regional warehouse or the full automated high-bay warehouse for Hochdorf Swiss Nutrition Ltd, which will contain more than 10'500 pallet spaces when completed.

Shortly before completion of the project is Coop' largest and most modern production site located in Pratteln, where Gilgen were responsible as General Contractor for the intralogistics system. Also, the new state-of-the-art Qatar National Library in Doha opened to public in early November. Gilgen supplied the automatic media and book-handling system.

Our marketing section for Loading Equipment was again entrusted with many interesting and challenging orders. Patek Philippe, Planzer Transport, The Swiss Post, Camion Transport, are just some well-known projects where the robust lifting platforms and docking stations will be in daily use. In all our 8'500 service calls in 2017, it was our aim to offer you service tailored to your needs.

For this success we owe thanks to many people, including first and foremost of course you as our customers. We extend a heartfelt thank-you for your trusting cooperation in 2017 and look forward to 2018. We will then play our best for your success as your partner for complete logistics systems.

We wish you a Happy Christmas and a successful new year!

Yours faithfully,

No Christmas card?

We deliberately refrain from printed Christmas cards or gifts and instead donate a substantial sum to the Kantha Bopha Children's Hospital Foundation.
