The distribution centre of Netto A/S, Denmark's largest food discounter with more than 500 stores, located in the Danish port city of Koge, is being expanded. SAMONT was entrusted with the installation of 30 m high stacker cranes in 5 aisles as well as modern pallet conveyor systems. The client is a leading international Japanese manufacturer of material handling systems.
In Sady, a logistics location near Poznań, a major online mail order company is expanding its logistics capacity. SAMONT is supporting the mechanical installation of container conveyor technology totalling 12,000 metres in length, including among other things 254 chutes and 16 spiral conveyors, and the electrical installation of the 800 metres long crossbelt sorter – and also including the laying, splicing and measurement of optical waveguides.
Modifying and replacing technical systems is one of SAMONT’s major strengths.The expertise of our specialists in this field was in demand recently at Cologne Bonn Airport, where a new generation of baggage scanners was installed with SAMONT’s support as part of a phased upgrade project.
In the town of Oberhausen, a new goods distribution centre is being built as a full-range warehouse for a leading alliance of retailers. SAMONT is involved as the assembly service provider for the electrical installation of state-of-the-art automation technology for the dry goods range, with an order-picking capacity of 252,000 goods units per day.
In 2021, we are building our new company headquarters at our Paderborn location. It will mainly house company divisions dedicated to planning and implementing assembly projects at home and abroad. This will also include the storage and provision of technical devices for assembly work and for installing the necessary customer-specific system comp-
At our company headquarters in Paderborn, SAMONT has opened a new centre for assembling and testing conveyor technology. In the building, which has a floor space of 3,500 square metres, complex storage, conveying, and sorting systems from major intralogistics manufacturers are pre-assembled and tested in real operation before being installed in logistics centres and distribution warehouses. The systems are constructed by SAMONT assembly teams and tested by the manufacturers’ experts. Following successful test runs they are disassembled again and packed safely for their journey to destinations in Germany and abroad.
SAMONT is one of Germany’s fastest growing companies. It occupies the 35th place on the list of the top 500 growth champions published by German news magazine Focus and the online portal Statista. We are ranked as high as 3rd place in the mechanical engineering and plant construction section. These placings are the result of our turnover growth by 108 per cent between 2016 and 2019. And we sustained our growth in the financial year 2020: Turnover again increased year-on-year by more than 15%.
SAMONT is constantly expanding its capabilities in all technical areas. One example: electrical engineering. This is where optical transmission systems are becoming increasingly sought-after since they can transfer more data over greater distances at higher speed. The planning and implementation requirements for installing this technology are met by highly specialized project managers. Meet one of them: Jeff Lersch (photo), Electrical Engineering Project Manager at our Brühl location. In addition to a capable mind, mastering all the processes involved in laying, connecting and measuring optical fibre also requires state-of-the-art application engineering (photo), in which SAMONT consistently invests.
