The home of your bottles
Over 4,500 m2 of state-of-the-art storage space, ideal loading and unloading facilities. Temperature controlled in all weather conditions, soon to be energy self-sufficient and an architectural landmark on the west side of Gamlitz.
Our new Logistic Hub offers everything we have long wanted for your bottles. We have already been storing bottles for our customers. This made it possible to produce in larger batches and thus reduce the costs for the individual bottles. This made our customers independent of the production restrictions imposed on us by the glass industry.
Smaller purchase quantities per year are also possible in this way, opening the door for many highly individualized glass packages that would otherwise never have seen the “light of day”.
However, there has been one limitation up to now: decorated bottles (lacquering, foiling, hot foil stamping, UV- or screen printing usw.) can only be stored safely at stable temperatures. And since the proportion of highly finished bottles and complex decoration concepts continues to rise, it was clear to us that the time had come for new storage options.
Increased demand and the resulting need for space helped us to launch this major project in 2021, and despite the more difficult conditions caused by the pandemic, we were able to pull it off within the planned timeframe.
On May 13, 2022, we had the pleasure of ceremoniously opening our new Logistic Hub – with all our employees, partners, friends and 300 invited guests.
The first part of the stage consisted of speeches from regional politicians (former mayor Karl Wratschko and mayor Friedrich Partl) and a greeting from our partner community Pleystein (mayor Rainer Rewitzer) as well as expert contributions from Dr. Harald Hauke from ARA, Jasmine Chilcott from NUDE BRAND CREATION London and Frank Wonisch from HARTINGER CONSULTING. In the second part, the owner family Wratschko (Arnold and Rosa, as well as Arnold junior and Kerstin) were interviewed by the moderator Nadja Bernhard about the history of the company and the success factor family in a very personal interview.
The rest of the evening was characterized by exciting culinary delights, Styrian wine, spirits from the region and musical accompaniment. Allegedly until late into the night.
