With the distribution centre, the capacities of the Group’s SHAC segment have been expanded to 15,300 m² of gross floor space with 14,000 m² of warehouse and logistics space. The centre is located close to the A61 motorway in the immediate vicinity of logistics experts such as Amazon and Lidl. The project was completed on time and on budget within nine months by GOLDBECK Südwest GmbH as general contractor.
"The new distribution centre also provides Selfio with the basis for continuing to serve the growing demand for building technology products promptly and reliably. Customers appreciate the convenience of having products delivered directly to their homes, as well as the wide portfolio of offerings, and the transparent ways to compare prices," said Selfio Managing Director Roger Moore. "The new distribution centre provides space for Selfio’s home technology range as well as room for future additions to the range. Production of the company’s own underfloor heating systems will also continue at the new site in Koblenz."
With its subsidiaries in the SHAC segment, in particular with the Selfio online shop, the 3U Group is successfully active in the e-commerce megatrend. The 3U online trade with systems and components for DIY enthusiasts and do-it-yourselfers under the motto "Do it yourself, but do it right!" has doubled its sales volume over the last five years. For the planned further dynamic growth, 3U has now created new capacities in a future-oriented manner and invested around 12 million euros in the construction of the new site.
"As a holding company, we are investing in the future prospects of our operating business. E-commerce in the B2C and B2B sectors is one of our strategic focal points. Demand is increasing thanks to our multiple award-winning online marketing and the comprehensive range of consulting services. With the new distribution centre, we are providing further improvements in delivery quality and at the same time realising noticeable cost advantages," says Michael Schmidt, Spokesman of the Management Board of 3U HOLDING AG.
