Stauff and Voswinkel combine logistics and sales
The Stauff logistics centre was expanded to 55,880 storage places for plastic boxes and 10,348 for Euro pallets
Stauff Group and Voswinkel GmbH combine logistics and sales. As of 2 January 2018, Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG delivers the products from both companies without transition period.
The acquisition of Voswinkel GmbH, one of the leading manufacturers of quick release couplings, hose fittings and custom-designed tube assemblies, in April 2015 was a milestone for the Stauff Group on the way to becoming a one-stop and system supplier for hydraulic line components. Since 2 January 2018, customers of both companies have been ordering all products through Walter Stauffenberg GmbH & Co. KG, with access to an even more comprehensive product range of hydraulic line components from a single source. The combining of logistics and sales for both companies provides substantial customer benefits: bundling of orders and shipments as well as reducing the number of suppliers offers specific time and cost benefits.
“In the past year, we have carefully prepared this operative step which had been one of our objectives for the takeover of Voswinkel GmbH from the outset,” Jörg Deutz, CEO of the Stauff Group, explains. This includes the expansion of the fully automated logistics centre in Neuenrade-Küntrop close to the company headquarters in Werdohl in the Sauerland region to 55,880 storage places for plastic boxes and 10,348 storage places for Euro pallets in the high-rack warehouse. “We guarantee existing and new customers of both companies the excellent service for which Stauff has been known for decades, with no transition period: smooth processes, high delivery capacities and accordingly high delivery reliability.”
Two strong brands – one contact
Since the start of 2018, customers have only one central contact for the entire range of Stauff and Voswinkel line components from seven product groups. This contact provides independent application advice and support for the selection of suitable components from a technical and economic point-of-view, beyond the limitations of product groups. The customer advisers work closely with the product managers from all product areas and with the application engineers and are therefore also an important interface to the customers’ design engineering departments.
“Two strong brands with a high level of development and manufacturing competence are housed under the umbrella of the Stauff Group,” Jörg Deutz highlights a crucial difference to one-stop suppliers whose portfolio is often completed by retail articles. Stauff and Voswinkel products are increasingly coordinated with one another and can also be provided as assemblies on request. “Intensifying the cooperation also provides our customers with clear engineering advantages through reduced costs and work in purchasing and logistics.”
