Bürstner invests in its logistics and production facilities in Kehl

Bürstner has modernised its logistics and production facilities in Kehl with the aim of higher productivity and a production capacity increase. The newly constructed production and logistics hall is now complete and delivers a reorganised structure, a state-of-the-art logistics concept and further standardisation.

This represents one of Bürstner‘s most substantial single investments in its recent past at its Kehl port site, which has now been officially handed over to the production facility management team. At its core is a new production and logistics hall for the manufacture of compact and mid-sized motorhomes.

The new assembly line is housed in a combination of a newly built hall and renovated existing buildings. Inside this complex, two production lines have been merged. All prefabrication will now take place directly at the conveyor entry point, which will make the production line more efficient. A new logistics concept has also been realised: The lines are now supplied just-in-sequence – which means according to the respective production batch size of a series. This saves space and time, and increases the line‘s efficiency.

“The assembly line has been up and running since 30 August. The staff are gradually learning their new tasks and work contents,“ says Bürstner‘s production facility manager Iskender Coskun. “The modernisation and expansion of the production facilities was necessary in order to be able to also meet the extremely high demand for Bürstner motorhomes and campervans in future.“

The next steps towards this have also already been scheduled: In January 2022, the in-house sewing department will be restructured and moved closer to the assembly line. By April 2022, a new joinery and cabinet making workshop will be established at the Kehl site.
