Press information: Published on in Company, Industry

YLOG Industry Solutions looks back on the first business year and celebrates the opening of the new company building in the Dobl business park.

YLOG Industry Solutions GmbH is a 100% subsidiary of the KNAPP AG, one of the worldwide leading suppliers of warehouse automation and warehouse logistics software. Industry, production and distribution companies comprise the majority of YLOG’s customers, such as the automotive supplier MSG Mechatronic Systems in Wies, or NOCH, the German specialist for model train accessories. In the flexible, expandable YLOG-Shuttle-Systems, many articles can be stored in a compact space and supply of the desired articles to the work stations is fully-automatic.

New company building opens
YLOG Industry Solutions celebrated the opening of the new company building in the Dobl business park on January 26, 2015 with honoured guests from politics, business and customers as well as representatives of the Supervisory and Managing Boards of the KNAPP AG. A building with about 900 m² and 600 m² office space on two levels offers the company enough room to grow. “It was the right decision to remain in Dobl and expand. Good transportation connections, infrastructure in the business park and cooperation with the authorities are a good basis for successful development,” stated Bernhard Rottenbücher who, as a one of the Managing Directors of the KNAPP AG, advocated this decision. The modern company building is distinguished by its environmentally friendly construction and minimal energy consumption.

Good first business year
“In the first business year we won projects with an order receipt totalling 5 million euros and  have a good order situation to start the new year. The development and production of our shuttle systems is done at the Dobl location, which we want to further strengthen in the future,” explained Wolfgang Skrabitz who, as Managing Director, runs the company together with Bernhard Rottenbücher. YLOG Industry Solutions started the previous year with 15 employees, a number which has increased to 24. More jobs are also expected for the next year. A turnover of 8 million euros is targeted, above all through further projects for customers in the production industry.
