First spade in the ground for Lidl Logistic Centre

The new Lidl logistic centre in German Bönen will become one of the biggest cold stores in Germany. This was announced by the manager Ekkehard George last Friday when the first spade of the 50 million project went into the ground. It is the intention that the new logistic centre will be put into use with about 300 employees in a year. 180 of those are already employed at the present establishment in Unna.
"25 years ago we started in Unna. To celebrate our jubilee we now give ourselves a new address," George said. When it became clear that it started to become necessary to build a new logistic centre the company selected Bönen as the area for the new establishment rather quickly. The circumstances for a logistic company are very good here. In the middle of 2011 Lidl finally bought a 15,000 m2 piece of ground. Later on more ground was purchased to make a total of 24 HA large area was bought. This was not easy, because a number of agrarians working here did not want to cooperate.
At the start only 107,000 m2 of the total of 235,000 m2 will be developed. In addition to a warehouse of almost 40,000 m2 in size and 12.5 m high an administration building of about 900 m2 and ten meter high will also be built. At a later stage in the coming years further extensions both in area and height will also be built.
