Nagel-Group opens logistics hall in Bochum

Bochum. 21.11.2022. The Nagel-Group has completed the construction of the new refrigerated logistics hall in Bochum. With 20,000 new pallet spaces, the location is expanding its capacities to over 55,000 spaces. The opening of the modern cold logistics centre took place during an employee event. The project was implemented together with the owners Rolf and Uwe Kappel, who invested in the expansion of the logistics location.


The construction project on the 44,000-square-metre site in Bochum got underway with the groundbreaking ceremony in October 2021. The building complex was completed on schedule in late summer 2022. “With the expansion of our contract logistics area, we can now handle further extensive customer projects,” says Björn Heinermann, Branch Manager of the Nagel-Group in Bochum. “The state-of-the-art technology also offers us additional opportunities to expand our range of services.”

Owner Uwe Kappel and Björn Heinermann, Branch Manager of the Nagel-Group in Bochum, are pleased about the commissioning of the new warehouses.

The Bochum branch invited employees, partners and families to the opening ceremony. The inauguration of the new building complex took place during a summer party. “The new logistics hall is another great milestone in the successful development of the Bochum location. A big thank you goes to the entire team for their great performance over the last few months. And now we are looking forward to bringing the new colleagues on board with the expansion,” says Björn Heinermann.

The Nagel-Group is looking to recruit in both the industrial and commercial sectors at its Bochum site and offers apprenticeships for various professions every year.  The expansion will create up to 100 new jobs in one of the Nagel-Group’s most modern cold logistics centres with various temperature zones.
