On 26 February, the local branch of liquid transport specialist KUBE & KUBENZ in Hürth near Cologne is moving from the Knapsack Chemical Park onto their own new campus, which is situated only a few kilometres away in Bergheim. On the new campus, the branch with more than 30 employees will continue to cover a broad range of services including engineering/technics, equipment management, sales & purchasing of international services, international and road planning as well as trucking. KUBE & KUBENZ had acquired the property towards the end of 2015. At a size of 18,000 square meters, it includes office buildings, a workshop and a box and tank container depot with a capacity of 250 TEU. In a secondary expansion stage, the depot’s capacity will be extended to 400 TEU. A company-owned reach stacker will be used to lift on, lift off and move the tank containers within the depot. The workshop will offer repair and maintenance services for box and tank containers as well as chassis and trailers and will be operated by Hendricks Reparatur & Service GmbH & Co. KG.
„“Our business in Cologne has seen some satisfying development during the past few years. The capacity expansion will allow us to continue to offer our customers the best possible service and flexible logistics solutions for the transport of their liquid and gaseous products,” emphasized Michael Kubenz, proprietor and Managing Director of KUBE & KUBENZ.
Branch Manager Olaf Fügemann added:
“The relocation and preparations of the new offices are already under way. Of course, this will have no impact on our operative business. We look forward to presenting our customers with our extended storage capacities and services at the new campus.”
