Austrian loader crane and truck mounted lift manufacturer Palfinger has started building an all new ‘flagship store' in Poing, on the eastern edge of Munich.
The new facility is located on a three acre/12,000 square metre site. The first phase, due to be completed in 2025, will include offices and a workshops for both service and vehicle installation. The second phase will be a substantial extension to phase one. The main principles of the new building are that it will be sustainability, energy efficiency and benefit from ‘future ways of working’.
Gerhard Sturm, senior vice president global sales & service said: “We are combining several functions - a large showroom, efficient service workshops that meet all requirements and modern offices - in an eye-catching new building that offers all services integrated into one location. Our flagship store in Munich represents the Palfinger spirit in a unique way and is an essential hub in our worldwide network of more than 5,000 locations.”
Thomas Nußbaumer managing director of Palfinger Germany added: “For anyone travelling via the airport, Munich-Poing is the fastest way to 'drop by’ at Palfinger to get to know the highlights of our product portfolio. We can implement this project quickly thanks to the good cooperation with the Poing municipal council.”
