Storage and Logistics

Logistics at objectflor – excellently organized

A high storage stock capacity, with short delivery times – a service that’s particularly important to objectflor. From the modern logistics centre in South Cologne, the company provides all of Central Europe with Design flooring, rubber floors, and technical vinyl flooring. 

So that the floor covering from objectflor gets to you faster!

When the objectflor Logistics Centre is full, there are 5.5 million square metres of floor coverings held there. With storage capacity on this scale, objectflor can ensure more customer service across the whole of Europe, and with short delivery times. This means that most of the decors from the different collections are ready in the new building, covering 18,600 square metres, just waiting for the orders to come in.

Ongoing expansion at objectflor meant that the previous depot building at the company headquarters in Cologne Rodenkirchen was no longer sufficient, so the management  of the company, established in 1989 and continually growing, took the decision to move to an ultra-modern building at the central Cologne logistics base at Eifeltor.The facility also provides some 600 square metres of office space for the staff.

Honoured with the DGNB preliminary Gold certificate

objectflor worked on this project with Prologis, as leading owners, operators, and developers of logistics facilities. It was important for both companies that the Logistics Centre should be planned and constructed in accordance with the highest ecological standards – and proof of that came at the end of October 2012, with the awarding to Prologis and objectflor of a Gold preliminary certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). 

The building was erected using low-pollutant materials and FSC-certified wood substances from sustainable forestry sources. As well as this, the building has enhanced thermal insulation and a highly efficient heating system with gas-powered dark radiators, while a percolating paving system reduces sealed outer surfaces.
