30,000 square metres of logistics space completed
Greven/ Peine, 1. June 2022 – After a good ten months of construction, the Fiege family business has completed its multi-user centre at the Peine Ost industrial estate, which is based in the Hanover metropolitan region. The roughly 30,000 square metres of logistics space within the 65,000 square-metres-large plot of land are split across three hall bays. Two office buildings to the front of the facility give the logistics company from Greven in Westphalia the option to further boost its Consumer Products-centred growth course. Currently, operational activities are ramping up, with operations for one of the customers having already gone live and goods being sent out. Once fully completed, Fiege’s new logistics centre will have created up to 150 new jobs.
“The Hanover region is a vital distribution hub for us. It offers outstanding logistical accessibility, making it predestined for omnichannel logistics that cater to consumer goods”, says Christoph Mangelmans, Managing Director at Fiege in charge of Consumer Goods. The central location at the junction of national and international transport axies creates ideal requirements for international sourcing and distribution activities of Fiege, Mangelmans continues, adding that “our logistics centre in Peine has direct access to the A2 and the A7 motorways.”
Fiege Real Estate partners for the construction side of this project with Deka Immobilien, LIST Bau Bielefeld as well as Krüger Consult GmbH as the project controller. A good ten months only passed between the start of construction and its completion. Thoralf Schuster, Managing Director Fiege Real Estate, says: “For our new construction project, we were in an ongoing exchange with the City of Peine. We wish to expressly thank the city for its support. As a family business, we feel very much at home here.”
The new property in Peine is ideally tailored to the logistical process flows of Fiege and offers a major flexibility of use which facilitates an adaptable response to a range of different customer needs. “It is quite impressive to witness just how fast the new building took shape”, Klaus Saemann, Mayor of Peine, tells us. “We are very pleased indeed to welcome the Fiege family business to our hometown.”
Even for Peine, Fiege greatly values an energy-efficient operation of its facility. The new warehouse has been certified to German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) standards. For example, the logistics centre is equipped with an energy-saving LED lighting system, a modern charging infrastructure for EV mobility and an energy concept that includes monitoring.
