BRAKE. The J. Müller group has commissioned two new warehouses directly on the water at Lower Saxony quay, creating a total of almost 30,000 square metres of covered storage space. The warehouses are part of the company’s growth and efficiency strategy for the pulp and wood product sectors. The forest products sector is also destined for expansion. Since the covered storage space is located directly on the quay, distances between ship and warehouse are minimal, thereby increasing efficiency and profitability. J. Müller’s investment in the facilities totals €13.8m. Construction contracts for the projects were as far as possible awarded to local companies.
