Just four months after groundbreaking at the new Trelleborg Sealing Solutions European Service Center in Stuttgart-Gärtringen, the final roof structure went into place.

Alexander Stapf, Global Logistics Director at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in Germany, says: "Less than four months after our groundbreaking ceremony, we saw the topping out of the European Service Center. The ambition of the center is not only to increase service quality for our customers worldwide, but also to set an example in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability. 


“We attach great importance to sustainable construction and a modern environment for customers and staff at the new building in Stuttgart-Gärtringen. This will include a solar power system with charging stations for electric vehicles, as well as a modular room concept for an innovative working environment and a modern company restaurant with healthy and regional dishes."


Dr. Thomas Uhlig, Managing Director & President Global Supply Chain Management at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says: " It is thanks to our employees that we continue to handle logistics and services in-house and do not outsource them to an external provider. We have a strong team that can serve our customers individually, with a firm grip on global supply chains in Europe, the Americas and Asia."


With a total area of 26,000 square meters, the highly automated European Service Center will be at the heart of services and logistics for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, encompassing storage, packaging and shipping functions. The site will also include a cleanroom facility for both manufacturing and packaging products for the healthcare & medical and electrical industries, alongside complete component assembly and coating down to the nano level.


The topping out ceremony was in the presence of local dignitaries, building contractors and all stakeholders that contributed to construction as well as senior Trelleborg personnel. The center will replace the existing service center, also located in Stuttgart-Gärtringen. Scheduled final move in date is the beginning of 2023.
