Decades of experience in construction and logistics
Head of Sales Swisslog Central Europe, Christopher Herweg, expressed his excitement at Bela’s decision to work with Swisslog on their first automation project: “We're honored to be selected as Bela's strategic partner for their first automation endeavor, where we can put our decades of experience in the food retail industry to use alongside our civil construction and software knowhow.”
Swisslog is the main integrator for both civil engineering and intralogistics works on the project, allowing Bela to benefit from a single supplier approach and minimize risk. Managing Director Volker Bluhm said: “One of the main reasons why we chose Swisslog was the passion and professionalism of the entire team, as I believe that is exactly what is needed to successfully implement our project. We want partners who are enthusiastic about us! In addition, Swisslog's reputation and experience in dealing as a general contractor for both civil construction and logistics supplies has been known for decades."
Swisslog is set to start work on site in November 2023, and the project is scheduled for completion in June 2025.
