Built in partnership with Skipiol Immobilien, the €12 million 12 000 sq m multi-purpose facility serves the packaging and distribution of filters. Six height-adjustable docking stations make it possible to load and unload up to 45 trucks per day. To avoid traffic problems, the new facility has its own truck access.
