Manitou Group has inaugurated its new spare parts logistics centre in Greater Noida, India. This new facility meets the group’s strong ambitions to develop its production and distribution activities in the region over the coming years.
Located on the outskirts of New Delhi in India, the new logistics centre is designed to support Manitou’s growth in this high-potential market. The spare parts stocked in this warehouse will be dedicated to the maintenance of machines manufactured at the group’s Indian plant, also located in Greater Noida. They will be shipped mainly to Asia, but also to South America and Africa, where Indian-made compact track loaders, telehandlers and backhoe loaders are distributed.
The new logistics centre has quadrupled in size to over 8,300 sq m, enabling Manitou to ship 90,000 order lines a year at maximum capacity. To ensure this daily quality of service, 40 employees will work in shifts at the new facility. Launched in January 2023, the project was completed in less than a year.
“This new logistics centre will enable us to continue improving the service we provide to our customers in this region, where the group has great ambitions. This warehouse will also benefit from the process and flow management standards already in place in our other logistics centres, to optimise the safety of our employees and carriers,” said Pierre-Yves Malgogne, vice president of the spare parts business unit at Manitou.
At present, Manitou has eight logistics centres around the world to make spare parts available to all its customers.
