In IDC Worms, the products from the Bosch "Power Tools" and "Lawn & Garden" ranges, as well as the corresponding accessories are processed logistically and the micro-distribution of the approx. 16,000 different articles across the whole of Europe is implemented, as well as the worldwide macro-distribution to all regional Bosch warehouses. Around 750 employees are responsible for this.

SSI SCHAEFER Noell brings everything together at FIEGE

As a general contractor in logistics, SSI SCHAEFER Noell undertook for the FIEGE Group in Greven the construction of a new logistics centre for electrical, garden tools and accessories for the Bosch product chain for the brands of Dremel, Bosch and Skil in Worms.

The objective: The cost-effective processing of the entire logistics for micro-distribution in Germany and the worldwide macro-distribution of the 20,000 different products for DIY enthusiasts and professionals.
