Lufthansa Technik AG is stepping up its capacities for the support of the A350
A symbolic groundbreaking marked the beginning of the expansion of a highly modern warehouse for the spare parts supply at the Munich location.
The existing warehouse of Lufthansa Technik Logistik Services is being expanded by 3,200 square meters of floor space and optimized for the A350 support amongst other things.
The currently limited warehousing capacity of LTLS in Munich in connection with the expanded material supply for a new aircraft type necessitated the expansion.
"What simply looks like a hall actually is an important cornerstone in our approach to supporting the Airbus A350," said Dr. Thomas Stüger member of the executive board of Lufthansa Technik.
"A highly modern and technologically advanced aircraft such as the A350 places high demands on us. Today proves that we are well on the way to offer a comprehensive and punctual support for the A350."
"The expanded warehouse will be equipped with the most modern and innovative storage technologies. This allows us to create the highest efficiency and optimize the utilization of both floor space and room height."
An automated block storage system AutoStore is being established at the first floor of the new warehouse. The expansion's first stage allows to store 15,000 bins. The system can be expanded by another 7,000 bins.
