A new warehouse and office facility in Schwalbach, Saarland, has been opened by Optimas Solutions. The custom-built facility will be used to increase capacity and productivity for logistical services to customers in Germany and surrounding countries.

Commenting on the investment, Anesa Chaibi, Optimas CEO, said: “Optimas offers a global service for customers, so it’s vital that we invest in a network of distribution centers to ensure that all of our partners benefit from local support and expertise. Germany is an extremely important market to us, and we are committed to continuously improve to support our customers.”

Optimas Solutions is a global service provider and distributor of fasteners and c-class components offering a full suite of services including design and engineering, supply chain management, logistical support, direct line feed and local inventory support. Its engineers work with OEM and tier 1 suppliers across industries as diverse as automotive, agricultural, medical equipment and off-highway vehicles.

The new facility is located on a 20,000m2 plot in an industrial area of Saarland, the location was chosen to maximise delivery links throughout Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Eastern Europe. In addition to a large loading and unloading yard, the warehouse has capacity for 16,000 pallets using high racks and automated vertical storage.

The Optimas brand has a strong heritage in Europe, having been established via acquisition of supply and manufacturing specialists from all over the world. The company’s original footprint in Germany is traced to Camille Gergen, which was established in 1946 as a supplier of screws, standard parts and connectors to industrial manufacturers. Many current Optimas employees worked for Camille Gergen prior to the acquisition, including Vice President for Northern Europe, David Kessler:

“The new facility represents a new chapter. The investment allows us to continue to work in partnership with our customers as their own businesses continue to expand. With over four hundred million parts moving through Germany every year, it’s important that our distribution and logistical capabilities are operationally excellent. A lot of hard work has gone into the build and I’d like to thank the team in Germany and worldwide for their support in making the move happen seamlessly for our partners.”
