Brown-field-planning: Reorganisation of a production site

Automotive supply industry

Böllhoff Produktion GmbH

Time period
11/2017 – 10/2019

Planning object
Reorganisation of a production site with approx. 7,000 m² gross floor area

As part of the relocation of a production area to a new site, GREAN was commissioned to develop a concept for the subsequent use of the space that became available for the plastics production remaining at the site. In addition to the reorganisation and structural redevelopment of the existing areas, the project focused on the development of a concept for the automation of internal logistics.

In addition to an automatic small parts warehouse, a concept for the installation of a driverless transport system was also developed. GREAN supported the client in the generation of ideas and concept development and accompanied the implementation of the first construction activities. Additionally GREAN was responsible for the project management of this brown-field-planning.

The systematic questioning of the ACTUAL state, the critical questioning of the status quo as well as the development of tailor-made, customer-specific solutions, this is what I particularly appreciate about GREAN.

Factory planning

New construction on a greenfield site or expansion of existing buildings - we offer you comprehensive advice and sophisticated planning services for a well conceived factory. For us, this includes basic master and factory structure planning as well as support for your project right through to implementation. Whether new or reorganisation planning - we are experts in factory planning.

Process optimization

In many factories, high inventories, long travel, search or lead times are a major cost factor, which at the same time massively reduces production efficiency. This is what we do: Our customers benefit from well-founded, systematic and analytical consulting. In this way, we work with you to increase the efficiency of your production.

Resource efficiency

High and ever increasing material and energy costs are becoming an efficiency problem in many factories. We systematically investigate where potential is lying dormant and then identify meaningful and economical measures for improvement. In this way we increase the material and energy efficiency in your factory - and at the same time reduce your energy bill.
