d&b audiotechnik expands facilities with new location in Ilsfeld, Germany.
d&b audiotechnik GmbH, one of the world's leading companies for professional sound reinforcement systems, is creating more space for production at headquarters in Backnang, Germany. The development sees the international Logistics and Shipping Department relocate from Backnang to Ilsfeld in the nearby District of Heilbronn.
The move, which took place in May this year, gives the department a new 2,700 m² warehouse and logistics hall with additional administrative and social rooms. The extra space meets the company’s rising demand for logistics capacity, after enjoying substantial international growth for several years. As well as its close proximity to the A81 motorway, the new hall also provides flexible space for the future.
Following a short construction period, around 15 co-workers moved from headquarters to Ilsfeld, creating space in Backnang to expand production. As of now, d&b will ship products from here to customers at home and abroad.
During an open day d&b co-workers visited the site to get an impression of their colleague’s new workplace. Managing Director Markus Strohmeier expressed his sincere thanks to everyone involved for the seamless transition: "The move went smoothly, according to plan and even during ongoing operations. You also performed this task in the typical d&b style – with great passion and quality awareness right down to the final details. This is a great achievement."
