Dehn opens second site

Monday, 03 February, 2014

Surge protection, lightning protection and safety equipment company Dehn has officially opened its new site in Mühlhausen, Germany. The ceremony was attended by the Minister of the Interior Joachim Herrmann; State Secretary Albert Füracker; District Administrator Albert Löhner; and Mühlhausen’s mayor, Dr Martin Hundsdorfer.

The logistics building for handling protective devices is 151 m long, 141 m wide and up to 20 m high, covering an area of more than 21,000 m2. It is the company’s answer to its growing international activities, with the resources of the traditional site in Neumarkt currently stretched to their limits. Managing Partner Dr Philipp Dehn said the company invested over €35 million in the project - the biggest single investment in the company’s history.

The new site houses automated high rack and small-parts warehouses and the incoming goods, commissioning and shipping department. The receiving inspection and parts of the production and final assembly of lightning protection components are also integrated into the new building.

In addition to opening the second site, Dehn has introduced the corporate software SAP to be able to flexibly meet new requirements and market developments in the future, address users’ needs, save resources and optimise the distribution of manpower. SAP is an internationally applicable and scalable ERP system for the future since it can be adapted to new requirements and is globally accepted.

“Our new site in Mühlhausen and the introduction of the corporate software SAP are essential for the further growth of our company and open up new perspectives,” Dr Dehn said.
