System analysis and design for assembly and warehouse logistics
Cologne, June 17, 2019 – As part of its strategic and production-related reorientation, H&H Gerätebau GmbH (H&H) is expanding its production, warehouse and administration space in Langenargen, Germany, by more than 30 percent. The specialists for refrigeration and thermodynamics took this opportunity to develop a completely new production concept and layout for the heart of the company, the production.
From October 2018 to February 2019, Dr. Schönheit + Partner (S + P) together with a project team from H&H developed a new assembly concept for one of the high runner products, as well as an optimized assembly layout. This allows productivity potentials and capacities to be used in a targeted manner. With the same objective, the planning and implementation of a central warehouse structure was carried out against the background of an integrated corporate concept. One challenge was the planning of the change measures, including relocation during ongoing production, which was successfully mastered thanks to the excellent cooperation between the H&H and S + P teams.
Already in December 2016, Dr. Schönheit + Partner developed within half a year an assembly concept for a part of the existing hall, which was transferred to the entire company in the course of the extension.
"On behalf of all employees, I would also like to thank Dr. Schönheit + Partner for their cooperative, professional and successful collaboration," said Norbert Herrmann, founder and senior director of H&H Gerätebau GmbH. "The optimized production and the new central warehouse will enable us to expand our success and achieve further milestones in our company history."
