Winter service in extreme conditions

“Good luck” (the German miners’ greeting) echoes through the halls of the Schönfeld Road Maintenance Depot in the Ore Mountains early in the morning. The thermometer reads -21 °C as the first few sun rays appear above Saxony’s highest mountain, the Fichtelberg. About 30 staff members at the Schönfeld Road Maintenance Depot take care of the roads – in both summer and winter. As soon as the first snow falls, things get particularly turbulent for the road surveyors. Then it’s time to harness the ploughs and load de-icing salt.

From A to Z – ASH original spare parts logistics chain

Any chain is only as strong as its weakest link. This is also true of a chain where it is particularly important for individual links to join together perfectly: the logistics chain. Logistics dictates the pace of any production operation. If it falters, it is only a matter of time before everything comes to a standstill.

A fully functioning logistics (chain) is therefore not just an important part of our production processes in our factories. It must also guarantee that our customers can be supplied with original spare parts across the full life cycle of the equipment and machinery. All year round and all over the world.
