Jan. 27, 2010, Stanley, NC – The American headquarters of Sennebogen, which includes a new
parts and training facility, has officially opened its doors in Stanley, North
Carolina. The company is committed to serving the North American marketplace
from this central location. A family-owned business founded in 1952 in Straubing, Germany, it is a
manufacturer of specialized material handling machines used in scrap,
recycling, logging, forestry, and many other industries. Sennebogen LLC, the
U.S.-based subsidiary of the company, was established in 2000 to introduce and
support the company’s equipment throughout the Americas.
According to Constantino Lannes, president of Sennebogen LLC, the opening of the new
facility is just the first step in its development. The centre is designed to
accommodate a significant increase in employees as the business achieves
expected growth targets. Its head office and parts and training facility are
part of the company’s plan for continued growth as it expands into new sectors.
Entering through the main door to the 54,000 square-foot facility, visitors arrive to an open,
welcoming reception area. The depth of the inventory here is evident in the
array of thousands of hydraulic and mechanical components in stock to service
various machine models. The warehouse also maintains an extensive inventory of
major machine components and assemblies. “We keep everything on hand that a
technician might need to keep one of our machines up and running, and with 24/7
parts and service availability, Sennebogen is maintaining its pledge to
maximize its customers’ up time,” Lannes claims. “Our distributors do a
tremendous job of keeping their own local supplies of service and repair parts,
so we’re always ready to replenish their stocks, without waiting for orders to
come from overseas. Almost any customer request is on its way the same day the
order arrives here.” Lannes notes that the warehouse even keeps a large
inventory of engines in stock.
The rear area of the facility is a wholly self-contained training center. Meeting rooms and classrooms are equipped
with computer networking and projection technology. The training section
occupies two levels, including an upper area that overlooks a large machine
bay. This allows trainers to bring any machine indoors, up to the 200,000-pound
870 model material handler.
