We empower our customer to grow worldwide
Functional excellence for custom solutions
We aim to be a reliable partner to satisfy first-time—and repeated—customers. We currently operate thirteen sites in Germany and in Antwerp, Belgium, with business contacts all across Europe. In 2016, however, we hope to extend our business far beyond that.
Our customers should be able to focus on their core businesses, securing their inventory where they need it and growing it where they can. And we take care of the rest—no matter where you are.
We are constantly developing and optimizing our services in order to leverage opportunities for efficiency and enhance our value proposition.
We feel that increasing plant availability in the Technical Service Business Line could lead to significant optimization. Another way in which Technology & Infrastructure makes its customers’ challenges its own is by adapting system maintenance cycles to market volatility. To this end, Technical Service develops forecast models for a variety of scenarios, increasing flexibility and reducing costs in the process. The establishment of global competence centers plays a key role here, as does process standardization in Europe. In addition to helping create and develop strategic partnerships, these factors also form the basis for knowledge transfer, supporting customer growth on a global scale.
The Logistics Business Line likewise helps Technology & Infrastructure to continue its development. We place considerable emphasis on strengthening green logistics by means such as bimodal transportation on interior rail- and waterways rather than on roadways. This task involves conducting systematic studies of entire logistics chains to assess their risks to the environment, occupational safety, and cost efficiency. In other words, we don’t just promise sustainability—we deliver.
Site management guarantees the power to grow globally by standardizing building operation processes. In keeping with the “think globally, act locally” philosophy, we foster knowledge transfer across site and regional boundaries. The core of this work involves harmonizing and enhancing the availability and quality of Facility Services beyond individual sites in order to provide competitive rental and infrastructure spaces. Conceptual priorities include uniform service levels, information systems, and ideas for optimizing operating costs, as well as comprehensive maintenance strategies and energy management.
The Energy & Utilities Business Line is committed to ongoing optimization of the sites’ integrated production network structures to include customers and external markets. Examples of success stories here include the implementation of a waste electricity management system extending across multiple sites and the introduction of integrated, 24/7 load and balancing-group management for electricity and natural gas. Initiatives such as these put Technology & Infrastructure in an outstanding position to develop competence centers that guarantee quality, availability, and safety for our customers from just a single partner. No matter what questions our customers have, our experts at Technology & Infrastructure draw upon functional excellence to provide tailor-made answers.
