For three-quarters of a century, the HARTING Technology Group has continued to revolutionize power transmission in industrial environments, with innovations available in this country through HARTING Canada. This month, HARTING gained more well-deserved recognition for its accomplishments: its unique European Distribution Center (EDC) logistics centre received the golden German Brand Award.
Awarded for only the fifth time, the prestigious golden German Brand Award is instigated by the Rat für Formgebung, or the German Design Council.
With cutting-edge logistics technology
The German Design Council puts on this awards ceremony in order to showcase the most innovative brand identities and creative campaigns in Germany and beyond. The HARTING Technology Group, which has its headquarters in Espelkamp, Germany, won this major prize in the category for Excellence in Brand Strategy and Creation – Brand Communication – Architecture and Buildings.
3deluxe, an internationally active architectural company based in Wiesbaden, designed this high-tech logistics centre with an administrative building attached. The centre, constructed in East-Westphalian Espelkamp, includes an automated small-parts high-bay warehouse and high-speed shuttle. Covering an area of more than 18,000 square metres, the EDC centre constitutes one of the most innovative logistics centres in Europe. It blends state-of-the-art logistics technology with ergonomic workstations in an ideal way.
According to the jury decision, the EDC logistics centre breaks ground with its hyper-modern, open, and light-suffused architecture, which provides communicative proximity in addition to unique visual axes over multiple levels. Its holistically developed architectural design reflects not just environmental values, but social ones too. As a result, it highlights the corporate philosophy very clearly, while demonstrating HARTING’s technological logistics expertise in an impressive way.
With its innovative intralogistics solutions, the EDC is a flagship project of HARTING’s technological logistics expertise. Visitors encounter HARTING products everywhere in the building – in its technology, systems, and interior. The award recognizes not only HARTING, but also 3Deluxe and its highly skilled team of architects.
The German Design Council was founded in 1953 on the initiative of the German Federal Parliament.
With this recent award, HARTING continues to demonstrate its stature in this field.
