TALKE opens new warehouse in Hürth near Cologne

Chemical logistics company TALKE has created additional storage capacities for pallets with materials designated as storage class 11 to 13. The commissioning of a new depot with three sections at the company’s headquarters in Hürth near Cologne has provided some 9,200 additional storage units.

“The commissioning of this warehouse is a clear commitment to our headquarters in Hürth,” says Group Managing Director Alfred Talke. “It is a first step towards expanding our capacities here in the Rhineland. Further steps are currently in preparation”.

The storage facilities were built some time ago but are only now being used by TALKE. They are designed for single-batch storage of materials designated as storage classes 11 to 13 as well as the strictest water hazard class 3. The compact shuttle storage facility with special carrier systems allows optimal processing times to be achieved with the simultaneous deployment of up to 8 employees in two picking zones with a total of 12 loading ramps. State-of-the-art detection and extinguishing equipment, including sprinklers within the rows and tiers of storage racks, offers optimal protection against fire.

The facility will be used to store the kind of products that are used, for example, in pharmaceutics and cosmetics, in pesticides, in fire-resistant and scratchproof glass, in semiconductor technology and in the production of cat litter.
