On the outskirts of Lüneburg, Roy Robson has built a new warehouse that has been operational since April 2018. The suits, jackets, trousers etc. of the menswear brand hang in this warehouse. If all 75,000 inhabitants of Lüneburg were men, they could dress completely with what Roy Robson has stored here at 90 by 90 meters. Most of the production takes place in their own factory in Izmir, Turkey. Only shirts, knitted products, ties and socks are stored lying, the other products are all transported and stored hanging.Read more
This is the reason the location is designed for both hanging and lying goods. The steel structures are designed by NEDCON. NEDCON has made a telescope construction for every loading port. In an endless loop this construction leads one metal trolley behind the other to the back of the truck. NEDCON has laid 13.5 kilometers of chromed steel pipes inside the warehouse for hanging garments. NEDCON assembled the tubes from units up to six meters long and was able to meet the specific wishes of Roy Robson. "It must slide smoothly", the managing director of Roy Robson Logistics GmbH had specified. This refers to the edge - and therefore smooth transition between the individual components. "If our employees simultaneously push forty or more parentheses over the tubes, they can not touch the seams." Before the production of the steel pipes began, NEDCON built a test construction for Roy Robson.
Precision was also required by constructing the floorboards. 5,000 square meters of gauze and 10,000 square meters of chipboard were used. NEDCON has guided the project from the first sketch to the last screw. According to Thomas Drexler, there are few companies in Europe that work at the level we require. ''After we had visited two NEDCON projects, we were convinced that NEDCON was the right partner. If we could do the project again, we would do it with all parties that were involved'', according to Drexler.
Even a great plan is just a plan....

Roy Robson had specific wishes regarding the steel tubes to which the garments had to hang. "It must slide smoothly", the managing director of Roy Robson Logistics GmbH had specified. The tubes must connect seamlessly so that the employees can easily push forty or more hooks over the tubes at the same time.
NEDCON has developed a tailor-made coupling plate after extensive research and built a test setup with chromed steel tubes in the NEDCON Innovation Centre.
