Boeing Opens New Germany Distribution Centre to Meet Growing Demand
The Boeing Company
Boeing opened its newest state-of-the-art distribution centre in Hensteadt-Ulzburg, Germany, expanding capacity to meet growing demand across Europe for specialised materials and chemicals. The facility will serve a broad customer base, including commercial airlines, business and general aviation, original equipment manufacturers and their subcontractors in the commercial and defence sectors.
At more than 200,000 sq. ft., the new centre will be one of the largest and most technologically advanced Boeing facilities. This location will help supply more than 6,000 airlines, suppliers, and component manufacturers with chemicals and speciality materials.
Stephanie Pope, CEO of Boeing Global Services, said:
"Opening this new site in Germany positions us to deliver more services to regional operators to keep their fleets running safely, efficiently, and sustainably. With the growing demand for these products, we need to provide our customers in the region with the chemical and speciality materials they need, when and where they need them.”
The facility meets high sustainability standards and will be seeking gold certification from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). The building has a heat pump and a photovoltaic system that will be put on the roof in 2023 to reduce its impact on the environment. There will also be charging stations for e-cars available at the site.
Dr. Michael Haidinger, president of Boeing Germany, said:
"The opening of this distribution centre will help grow Boeing's commitment to Germany and the European aerospace market. Our goal is to help the aerospace industry in the area grow over the long term and keep Boeing at the top of the European distribution services market. We are pleased to have a site that also sets sustainable standards and offers our employees a state-of-the-art workplace."
