Güntner-Tata opens new logistics facility

HUNGARY: The Hungarian minister of foreign affairs and trade Péter Szijjártó has officially opened the new 65,000m² Güntner-Tata Refrigeration Technology logistics centre in Tata, near Budapest.

In addition to the logistics centre, the €25m site expansion includes a 9,000m² modern production facility and a 6,500m² warehouse.

The Güntner-Tata company was founded in 1990 by German manufacturer Güntner and Tata Hűtőtechnika, formerly a state-owned refrigeration cooperative.

The Tata factory is  Güntner’s largest production plant. It produces the entire product family, including industrial evaporators, air coolers, condensers and other special products. Since the start of its operation 30 years ago, the production site has grown 20-fold, from 2,000m² to almost 40,000m² today. 

János Szabó, managing director of Güntner subsidiary logistics company Coolbridge Service, revealed that the goods distribution centre began operations on 1 December 2019. An average of 60 heavy goods vehicles arrive at the facility each day, meaning the loading and shipment of 300-400 palettes of finished goods to over 2500 addresses in over 60 countries on five continents.
