11/11/2018 - Just two short months after the devasting fire remarkable progress is being made at our Meckesheim Headquarters. With the damaged structure completely removed and the debris cleared away it's hard to imagine that this was once a fully stocked parts warehouse.
Management is busy working with architects and engineers to plan a rebuild that will allow for improved space utililzation, create better inventory control and allow for easier access to parts.
It won't be long before the first steel beams are erected and construction gets into full swing. In fact, the image on the far right shows the entrance to the newly constructed paint shop.
9/10/18 - In the early morning hours of Monday, September 10, 2018, a major fire was reported at Herbold's warehouse in Meckesheim, Germany. The cause of the fire is yet undetermined, but what is known is that the local fire brigade along with help from surrounding communities - 150 firefighters in all - did heroic work to contain the fire and save the majority of the facility.
The most significant damage occurred in the Test Materials Storage and Parts Warehousing areas. The Administrative Offices, Main Assembly Area, Materials Test Facility and Equipment Showroom were all spared.
Fortunately, the company had recently expanded with the acquisition of an off-site warehouse with a significant amount of excess capacity. This location will be immediately converted for use as the new assembly area.
Herbold’s valued suppliers have committed to work with us to help us quickly rebuild our parts inventory and lessen any potential impacts of the fire.
In a joint statement, company owners Karlheinz and Werner Herbold expressed relief that no employees or emergency responders were injured and stressed that while this unfortunate incident will cause some unexpected inconvenience for customers they are committed to making every effort to ensure the company continues to deliver the high quality equipment and service they have long been known for.
