New Munich hub for Palfinger2 February 2023
Flagship Palfinger hub comprising showroom, workshops and offices to open in Germany.
Austrian manufacturer of hydraulic lifting, loading and handling systems, Palfinger, has announced it is opening a new flagship hub in Poing, near Munich, Germany.
The new site, which will be almost 12,000 square metres in size, will comprise a showroom, service workshops and offices.
Palfinger said the new centre will help it expand its footprint in Germany – one of its core markets.
Palfinger believes the centre’s convenient location, near Munich, will help it further develop its relationship with customers in the area and shorten service times. “For anyone travelling via the airport, Munich-Poing is the fastest way to 'drop by’ at Palfinger to get to know the highlights of our product portfolio,” says Thomas Nußbaumer, managing director, Palfinger Germany.
Palfinger adds that Munich is also one of the most important research locations in Germany; there is a tradition here of cooperation between university, non-university and industrial research. In this environment, the company hopes there will be additional opportunities to expand its research and development partnerships.
The first phase of construction, up to 2025, will see the offices and a service and bodywork workshop built. In a second construction phase, the complex will be further expanded.
“We are combining several functions - a large showroom, efficient service workshops and modern offices - in an eye-catching new building and offer all services integrated into one location,” explains Gerhard Sturm, senior vice president Global Sales & Service, Palfinger. “
The new location will also enable Palfinger to demonstrate its products in action in a dedicated outdoor arena. “With this exclusive offering, our Palfinger flagship store is absolutely state-of-the-art, not only in Germany,” concludes Sturm. “It represents the Palfinger spirit in a unique way and is an essential hub in our worldwide network of more than 5,000 locations.”
