The Uzwil-based Bühler Technology Group is investing in its site in Alzenau, Germany, the headquarters of its thin-film technology leader Bühler Leybold Optics, to build a state-of-the-art logistics center.

By the end of the year, the Bühler Die Casting and Grinding & Dispersion units, currently operating their logistics and warehousing faciliaties in Viernheim, Germany, will move to Alzenau. “With the integration of the logistics of three business areas here in Alzenau, we are strengthening our site as well as accelerating our deliveries to customers in Europe and the rest of the world,” says Antonio Requena, CEO and Managing Director of Bühler’s Business Area Leybold Optics.

Over the next months, the current logistics center of Bühler Leybold Optics in Alzenau will be enlarged to 2000 square meters and equipped with the most advanced storage system.After the relocation of the Die Casting and Grinding & Dispersion business of Bühler from Viernheim to Alzenau, the site will employ more than 240 people.

The merger of the locations is a strategic step of the Advanced Materials division of Bühler to take optimal advantage of synergies especially with regards to its spare parts business in Europe. By establishing a hub in Alzenau, spare parts can be delivered to customers within less than two hours inside Europe. “This provides a strong competitive advantage to the Advanced Materials Hub Germany, especially to our customers in precision and ophthalmic optics, packaging, as well as the glass and automotive  industries,” confirms Mr. Requena.

The Advanced Materials business of Bühler offers innovative technologies and solutions for ensuring efficient and safe mobility. 25% of all aluminum engine blocks worldwide are manufactured on Bühler equipment. Across the globe, roughly one third of automobile taillights and headlamps are provided with reflectors that have been coated on Bühler Leybold Optics machinery.
