Forklift truck manufacturer cements commitment to sustainability with start of Northern Central Hub build

Published:  28 June, 2021

A state-of-the-art facility that will consolidate business operations in North West England, has been announced by Jungheinrich UK. The company’s Northern Central Hub build has started within the North West of England, further supporting its centralised logistics processes in the North .

The warehouse and office complex located at Mountpark Warrington Omega, north of Warrington, is set to complete in the beginning of September 2021. The facility unites six of Jungheinrich’s existing sites in the North West, providing additional training facilities for servicing, a demonstration hub, maintenance and sales, as well as the opportunity to scale for further growth in future years.

One key consideration for the project was Jungheinrich’s commitment to sustainability. The facility is engineered to support energy sufficiency and carbon emission reduction and by centralising the logistics processes in the North, Jungheinrich has reduced its truck movements between multiple sites – further lowering its carbon footprint.

As a core part of the building design to support its sustainability efforts, Jungheinrich fitted a 99.55kWh photovoltaic solar system to its new facility in Warrington. The system consists of 362 solar panels and will generate 74,264kWh, contributing clean green energy to the building’s energy needs and sustainability goals.

Luuk Snijders, managing director at Jungheinrich UK commented: “Our new Warrington hub further enables us to reduce emissions and time theft by centralising the facility, allowing our staff to work more efficiently whilst contributing to our ambitious sustainability goals.”

Snijders added: “Our continued investment in the UK highlights our commitment to the environment, customers, staff and long-term sustainable growth within the market and our vision of becoming the number one intralogistics company.”
