Imbach Logistik builds on Lucerne site

On August 13, 2020 the ground-breaking ceremony for the logistics center of Imbach Logistik AG took place in Littauerboden. The new building offers about 30'000 square meters of working space. In the future, 60 people will work here. With this project, Imbach is sending a clear signal in a difficult economic environment.

Big things are being built in Littauerboden: among other things, a fully automated high-bay warehouse with 6500 storage spaces for pallets and a fully automated small parts warehouse for up to 130,000 containers. Also a photovoltaic system with a maximum output of 1000 kilowatt hours - annual production is 950,000 kilowatt hours, which would be enough for 210 households. All this shows: The new logistics centre of Imbach Logistik AG has a lot to offer. The ground-breaking ceremony took place today, Thursday. "With the construction, we are well prepared for the market needs of the future," says Christan KempterImbach, Managing Director of Imbach Logistik AG with headquarters in Schachen LU. "The new building provides the basis for modern, tailor-made, efficient and ecological services in the field of logistics". Central to this is the management of goods for customers, ranging from the storage of products to picking and shipping to the recipients.

60 new jobs

Imbach is already operating at the location in question. The new logistics centre is being built in two stages. The first is scheduled for completion by the end of summer 2022. The second will last until autumn 2024, during which time the existing halls will be replaced by the new building. In future, the new building will contain around 60 workplaces. The total area over all floors is 30,000 square metres - equivalent to four football pitches. The arrangement of the high-bay and small-parts warehouse is striking: the high-bay warehouse is located at the bottom of the building, with the small-parts warehouse above. Such a construction is still extremely rare in Europe. This is because it is demanding due to the enormous floor loading caused by the small parts warehouse. This amounts to 5 tons per square metre; purely mathematically, the floor could support 77 jumbo jets. The new building is being constructed in the Littau district of Lucerne. "The location is ideal for us for several reasons," explains Christian Kempter-Imbach. Because of its central location with excellent transport connections and because of its proximity to several manufacturing companies within a radius of 20 kilometers. "We can therefore offer optimal and ecological production logistics". 

Heating and cooling by groundwater 

As at other locations, Imbach in Littauerboden consistently relies on "Green Logistics". The new building is heated and cooled 100 percent with groundwater. Heat pumps provide one thing, a freecooling system another. The Corona crisis has left clear traces in the economy. Nevertheless, Imbach Logistik AG is investing in this challenging period - the new building will cost around 60 million Swiss francs in total. This is a clear sign. "We believe in the future and we are investing in it," says Christian Kempter-Imbach.Because of its central location with excellent transport connections and because of its proximity to several manufacturing companies within a radius of 20 kilometers.

In any case, the pandemic has once again shown how important functioning logistics and transport systems are. The new building on Littauerboden will play its part in the future. 2 / 2 Press release Specialist for logistics throughout Switzerland Imbach Logistik AG, headquartered in Schachen LU, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Galliker Transport AG from Altishofen LU.
