KUKA receives large-scale order from dm-drogerie markt in the triple-digit million euro range
The Swisslog division has won another major contract from the German drugstore group, dm-drogerie markt. The order value amounts to around 100 million euro and will be booked in the third quarter of 2017.
An innovative logistics center will be built over the course of the next two and a half years in Wustermark, in the state of Brandenburg, to the west of Berlin. Swisslog will be responsible for intralogistics and all construction activities.
“This project is the perfect example of how we create solutions by dovetailing the expertise of KUKA and Swisslog, and shows that we are the leading provider of robotics solutions in the field of intralogistics,” emphasizes Dr. Christian Baur, CEO of Swisslog Warehouse and Distribution Solutions and COO of Swisslog Group.
“The new warehouse project is the third major contract we have taken on for dm-drogerie markt,” explains Dr. Till Reuter, CEO of KUKA AG. “It’s great when we are able to collaborate with our customers to promote innovation. We are very proud of this relationship.”
