New Gira production, development, and logistics centre

Modern industrial architecture: The new Gira production development, and logistics centre covers an area of 30,000 square metres. Around 550 employees will work here in Assembly, Logistics and Development from 2018 onwards. Thanks to an intelligent heating and cooling concept, the energy requirement is 45 percent less than for conventional production facilities.

The production, development, and logistics infrastructure is moving in. The machinery in the logistics zone has taken up position. The construction workers are joined by technicians and programmers specialized in the latest logistics technology with which the centre is to be equipped.

March 2018

The logistics zones are materializing: In future, these areas will be used for storing, transporting, and picking and packing orders for customers.

You can already see where the meeting rooms will be. There are still cables hanging from the ceiling, but we think we'll be able to get them concealed. We have good connections to the electrics trade.

Precision work: 22-metre long concrete pillars form the supports for the high-bay warehouse. During the night they are delivered to the site via special heavy haulage so that they can be erected and aligned with millimetre precision during the day. The alignment of each tip cannot be more than ten millimetres out, as otherwise the wall elements won't fit the concrete pillars.

19 November 2016

Preparing the ground: 4,000 gravel-filled bore holes are embedded up to the rock on the building plot to compact the ground, so that it can be built on without any problems.

28 October 2016 – Laying the foundation stone

The largest investment project in the 111-year history of Gira: Gira kicks off the construction phase of the project with a foundation stone laying ceremony attended by Radevormwald mayor Johannes Mans, architect Professor Matthias Sauerbruch, and numerous other guests.

28 October 2016 – Laying the foundation stone

"This new building is an important step for our international competitiveness, a clear commitment to the Radevormwald site and to the 'Made in Germany' quality seal, and creates ideal conditions for further growth," emphasises Dirk Giersiepen at the foundation stone laying ceremony.

"All in all, only half of the maximum CO2 emissions are released, as prescribed by the Energy Savings Ordinance," explains Professor Matthias Sauerbruch (second from right), summing up the impact of the planned energy efficiency measures. "In other words: Gira remains ahead of its time here."

28 October 2016 – Laying the foundation stone

For future archaeologists: And, as is customary, a time capsule is embedded in the foundation stone, which contains the local newspapers dated 28 October, the current edition of the employee magazine "Gira intern“, coins and a brand-new Gira E3 switch.

"You don't often get the opportunity to design from scratch an ideal value chain in its entirety - from incoming goods, warehousing, logistics, assembly, right through to outgoing goods – and on a greenfield site too," comments Dirk Giersiepen, Gira's Managing Director, on the decision for the new building.
