New logistics center enables Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey to grow further
Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey relies on the expertise of Timbra and Goldbeck for its growth. The construction and service company Goldbeck, in cooperation with the real estate project developer, the Timbra Group, is realizing a new forward-looking expansion of warehouse and logistics capacities for the aircraft engine maintenance specialist in Alzey, Rhineland-Palatinate.

In the presence of Daniela Schmitt (Minister for Economic Affairs, Transport, Agriculture and Viticulture of Rhineland-Palatinate), Steffen Jung (Mayor of Alzey), Heiner Illing (Member of the Rhineland-Palatinate state parliament) and Heiko Sippel (District Administrator of the Alzey-Worms district), the construction work, which began in March, has now been officially inaugurated. The new building will serve as a storage and logistics center for aircraft engines and engine spare parts for Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey. This will expand the already 242,000 square feet of factory premises with an additional logistics area of approximately 110,000 square feet.

 

The 100% subsidiary of Lufthansa Technik AG repairs and overhauls engines for regional and business aircraft as well as the latest generation of engines for medium-range jets in Alzey. Additionally, it offers further services such as a round-the-clock On-Site Service or leasing solutions. The project developer for this project is Timbra real estate project development Alzey. “More and more customers from all over the world want to have their engines overhauled by us. With Timbra and Goldbeck, we have the right partners to create more space for this growth in Alzey,” explains Tobias Baumgart, Chief Operating Officer of Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey.

 

Improve logistics processes

The construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024. “This ‘ambitious’ implementation period is made possible by the excellent cooperation with the authorities, the planning and construction companies and the Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey team,” says Martin Gerkhardt, one of the managing directors of the Timbra Group, expressly thanking everyone involved. “With our systematized construction method, we are realizing a future-oriented building for the Lufthansa Technik subsidiary in Alzey economically, quickly and sustainably,” explains Joerg Weiland, Branch Manager from Goldbeck. “The resulting improvement in logistics processes contributes to faster movement of engine parts and enables optimal supply to production,“ adds Tobias Baumgart from Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey. In their speeches, the participants emphasized the importance of this project for the future of Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey and praised the collaboration of all involved in making this milestone possible.

 

Focus on Growth and Sustainability

Sustainability plays a significant role in planning and construction. While high-tech aviation parts are ready for use in the building, a photovoltaic system on the hall roof reduces the CO2 emissions of logistics and production processes. In addition, the entire roof area is greened. The industrial underfloor heating is combined with a highly efficient heat pump. Through these measures, the building will receive a gold certification from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).

 

“We are aware of our responsibility for people and nature – by constructing the new building, we are creating the potential for further growth and thus important jobs. At the same time, we are meeting the highest standards of sustainable construction,” says Rubin Siddique, Chief Executive Officer of Lufthansa Technik Aero Alzey.
