Jungheinrich marks 50 years in Norderstedt

News Story
Norderstedt's millionth vehicle marks a special celebration
Jungheinrich has celebrated the 50th anniversary of its plant in Norderstedt, Schleswig-Holstein.

The Hamburg-based intra-logistics company has been producing industrial trucks and storage technology for the global market in the district of Friedrichsgabe since 1967.

The group has since invested over EUR230 million (USD260 million) in the plant directly adjacent to the Altona-Kaltenkirchen-Neumünster railway route towards Kaltenkirchen.

Jungheinrich assembles electric high-lift trucks, reach trucks and low-platform trucks on the 214,000 sqm site.

In 2016 alone, 47,380 Jungheinrich vehicles left the production line in Norderstedt.

Together with the shareholder family, the board of management, supervisory board and employees celebrated the 50th birthday of the Jungheinrich plant as part of a large family festival. The highlight was the unveiling of the millionth forklift by the two daughters of company founder Dr Friedrich Jungheinrich.

"At 50 years of age, the Jungheinrich plant in Norderstedt is older than the town of Norderstedt itself, which was established three years later. From the very beginning, Jungheinrich focused on solid growth. Production of our millionth vehicle is evidence of the success and importance of our oldest plant outside Hamburg. Without the fantastic commitment of everyone at the site over the past five decades, this development would not have been possible," says Hans-Georg Frey, chairman of the board of management of Jungheinrich AG.  

With its approximately 1,300 employees, Jungheinrich Norderstedt is one of the largest employers in Schleswig-Holstein. Around 600 young people have been trained in various skilled trades at Jungheinrich in Norderstedt since 1967, over half of whom still work at Jungheinrich.
