The Nagel-Group’s new cold store, in Bochum, has officially started operations after I. Kappel Gewerbepark Bochum GmbH & Co. KG built a new extension with 15,000 pallet spaces for the food logistics provider. On site since 1876, the specialist for food logistics last extended the branch in 2011.
The warehouse can be divided into different temperature zones with the ability to cool individual sections down to zero degrees. Handling food of all kinds, the Nagel-Group also offers on-site services such as order picking, retail packing, labelling, repacking of products, and display construction.
The Nagel-Group has rented the 13.5m high facility on a long-term basis. With this extension, the owner of the property, I.Kappel Gewerbepark Bochum, has created a high tech refrigerated logistics property. The €14m investment has an overall area of more than 11,000 sq m and 27 fully insulated loading bays.
Tobias Nagel, shareholder and Chief Technical Officer of the Nagel-Group, explained the necessity of the new building: “With the extension, we are modernising and extending our storage capacities and, thus, are able to offer our customers urgently needed space.”
By modernising the branch and gaining new customer projects, the Nagel-Group has created additional jobs in Bochum. In recent months, around 70 new jobs have been created, mainly in the warehouse area.
