Brenntag India recently inaugurated a warehouse, which is located about 50km from its Mumbai office. The first facility which is 100 per cent managed by the company, it will assist in meeting the changing demands of the local customers and ensure the integrity and quality of products, while reinforcing personal and environmental safety.

L Balakrishna, managing director, Brenntag India, said, “Earlier, we used five different warehouses to fulfill our needs for storing and handling our goods. This consolidation into a single warehouse will efficiently improve our quality, health, safety and environment management (QHSE) standards and will bring cost savings to the company.”

“It is exciting for us and we have eight Brenntag employees to manage it, supported by 15 contractual employees,” he added.

The new warehouse, which covers an area of 1,00,000sq ft, has a general storage area, allocated areas for food and pharma, and also has a segregated hazardous chemical storage space.

Furthermore, it has separate air-conditioned (16-25°C) and cold rooms. Drumming will be automated using a programmable logic controller (PLC) machine. A blending unit is also among its future plans.

Balakrishna said, “It is an energy-saving warehouse where natural lighting is used until sunset, except in the cold rooms. The requirement for cooling is much less, thus adding to the energy efficiency of the facility.”

Knud Mohr, chief operating officer, Brenntag APAC, says, “India is a strategic priority for Brenntag and a country in which we have invested significantly in for many years.”

“We have always believed in setting higher than normal standards for supply chain excellence and warehousing, because we believe quality is important for our customers and supplier partners,” he added.

“Once again, we make a leap forward to maintain the high standards we have set for ourselves, and we are proud to see this level of warehouse in India, which is completely on par with any other country in which Brenntag is operating,” Mohr said.

The inauguration of the new warehouse was attended by Balakrishna, Knud Mohr and Christian Frimann, president, South Asia and South East Asia, Brenntag APAC. About 140 people from Brenntag India attended the celebration. Following the safety video, the participants did a tour of the warehouse.
