Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, Toulouse (France), is expanding its facilities by building a two-story logistics center. Construction started in mid-November 2012, with the new logistics center being scheduled to commence operations at the end of 2013.
On a surface of 6,300 m², the building will house all logistic-related activities − goods receiving, incoming quality inspection, warehousing, finished goods warehousing and shipping − as well as office areas for administration, purchasing, supplier quality assurance and other support functions for logistics. The two buildings currently accomodating logistics will then be used to house the assembly shop, the production and the repair shop for heat exchangers.
Liebherr-Aerospace will thus be able to optimize the industrial processes at its Toulouse site. All in all, the investment will allow the company to further enhance its performance regarding quality and on-time deliveries and to even better support its air framer and operator customers.
