René Putzar, mayor of Malchow, also mentioned the very good cooperation between the city of Malchow and EDEKA North and the importance of the logisitics location as an employee in the region.
The topics of competitiveness, modernisation and renovation at the location in Malchow that were discussed by Martin Steinmetz, managing director, and Uwe Schmidt, head of logistics, sparked the interest of the public. Afterwards, Norbert Plock, manager at Malchow, talked about why EDEKA is a successful employee and training company.
On 27 October 1992, the 0.85 hectares of storage area of a former carpet factory were turned into the logistics company for EDEKA North. Since then, around 200 EDEKA supermarkets in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern are supplied with the help of 80 employees. The location, that used to be rented, was eventually bought and expanded. Today, 13,000 to 15,000 products are picked and sent by almost 400 employees on 3.3 hectares of storage area. EDEKA North has always been one of the biggest employers in Malchow.
