Contemporary office lighting with ERCO lighting tools brings together efficiency with maximum visual comfort for variable work situations. In the recently expanded logistics centre of the internationally active distributor and airport retailer Gebr. Heinemann in Hamburg, the suitable illuminance values and optimum glare reduction of compact ERCO LED downlights help to create a pleasant working environment.
Founded by the brothers Carl and Heinrich Heinemann in 1879 as a small family-owned company, their business then developed over four generations to become one of the most significant distributors and retailers in the international travel market. Today Gebr. Heinemann supplies international airports, airlines, cruise ships and border stores in over 100 countries with a continuously expanding range of duty-free brand products consisting of perfumery, cosmetics, wines, spirits, confectionery and delicatessen foods. Around 500 employees control the company's distribution processes from their base in Hamburg-Allermöhe, and up to 700,000 picked merchandising units are handled daily in the distribution centre constructed in 2003 to be dispatched to wholesale customers around the world. The existing building has now been raised by a further office storey under the auspices of IFB consulting engineers & architects. Modern workstations for 46 employees have been created in a central area featuring an inserted gallery, and ideally illuminated with the latest ERCO LED lighting technology.
