Diesel Technic improves product availability and distribution services

Diesel Technic UK & Ireland’s parent company the Diesel Technic AG, is improving its product and service offering to customers by way of an expansion to its headquarters. With more than 36,000 branded products and distribution partners in 150 countries, the Diesel Technic Group ranks as one of the largest suppliers of commercial vehicle spare parts in the independent aftermarket.

“The expansion of our headquarters enables us to improve our streamlined logistics processes, meaning faster delivery times of DT Spare Parts and Siegel Automotive products in the UK,” explains Mark Boden, General Manager, Diesel Technic UK & Ireland. “This expansion is part of the ongoing growth at Diesel Technic and directly helps our customers here in the UK through an increase in product availability.”

As part of the expansion, the company’s existing high-bay warehouse is being supplemented with a new logistics building that covers an area of 6,600 m², and is as big as some UK football stadiums. Around 4,500 m² of the new building is intended for high-bay storage, with space for a total of 13,000 pallets. Another 1,150 m² of floorspace will be home to a state-of-the-art and fully automatic shuttle storage technology that has a capacity for 40,000 boxes arranged over 37 levels. The new logistics building will particularly improve product availability, and the automation technology will accelerate the logistics process. A number of modern-equipped offices will also supplement existing capacity.

“Our comprehensive range of aftermarket spare parts help workshops and end users to keep commercial vehicles moving around the world, this is aided by the help of our distribution partners too.” Says Boden. “This expansion furthers our capabilities as a ‘one-stop-shop’ supplier by offering technicians the quality parts they need, in no time at all.”

The company expects the expansion of its headquarters, based in Kirchdorf, Germany, to be completed over the course of 2019.
