Agilia is adding a new warehouse and improved facilities for its employees.

Our Agilia operation in Denmark is in the process of constructing a new 2,600 square metre warehouse at their facility in Videbæk. Due to open in September, the new building will include modern facilities and improved conditions for everyone that works there.

Rita Koch Petersen, Site and Quality Manager for Agilia in Videbæk explains:

“Currently, we rent storage facilities about 20 km away to supplement our own. We have a laboratory in a temporary pavilion, a workshop in a container and our conference room has long since been turned into offices. We have rented a lot of storage space, including a large tent. This is not a good solution, and we now need to build new facilities."

Automation and welfare

The new warehouse will contain a modern shelf solution for the products, and is designed to allow automation of a number of processes.

“However, this is not about employee cutbacks. We are experiencing great demand for our products, so automation will enable us to continue to meet our customers’ needs.…We give high priority to safety and high quality, and both will be significantly improved when we expand.”

“We will get new welfare facilities, which will provide better changing facilities and also a canteen big enough for all of us.”

Production continues while the construction is taking place and, with a large part of the current area closed off, employees have been familiarising themselves with new work processes and access procedures since last year to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
