Expansion requires space

Dorfner is the market leader in structural and decorative fillers, which are marketed worldwide under the GRANUCOL® brand name. These products are used mainly for resin-based composite materials and floor coverings. GRANUCOL® is used as a main component in modern, extremely durable and scratch-resistant kitchen sinks and highly resilient industrial flooring, e.g. in the pharmaceutical and food industries, as well as in decorative sales floors.
To cope with the rates of growth in these industries and levels of demand for customer-specific ranges of GRANUCOL®, Dorfner has invested in a sustainable storage and logistics concept. The highlight of this project was the building of a new warehouse, which went into operation in June 2013 at the site in Hirschau.

Warehousing and logistics operations for our GRANUCOL® products are
therefore now housed in a new building with a spacious 2,500 square
meters of floorspace. Vehicle access through enormous roller doors on
all sides for loading enables pallets and bigbags holding GRANUCOL® to
be handled much more easily, with reduced loading times.

“The new
warehouse and logistics center for GRANUCOL® represents the attainment
of an important goal for us at Dorfner,” explained Johann Scherer, head
of ISG production and person in charge of the new logistics center. “Our
customer processes are now even more effective with the new GRANUCOL
building and it also means improved product availability and speedier
delivery,” he proudly added.
