As part of its implementation of Industry 4.0 principles, Škoda Auto held its grand opening of an €8m automated small parts warehouse. The parts will be stored, retrieved and transported to the assembly line as needed by a fully automated system in the 2,000 sqm warehouse.

Michael Oeljeklaus, Škoda Auto Board Member for Production and Logistics, said, “Last year, we were already able to significantly improve the production logistics processes at our Kvasiny plant. We are now also taking the efficiency of the processes at our main plant to a new level with the new automatic small parts warehouse. The warehouse in Mladá Boleslav is considerably larger and optimally prepares the plant for the future demands of car manufacturing with state-of-the-arttechnology in line with the principles of Industry 4.0.”

Michael Oeljeklaus officially opened the new automatic small parts warehouse (ASPW) together with Jiří Cee, Head of Brand Logistics, and KOVO Union MB representative, Miloš Kovář.

The idea is for robots to relieve workers of some of the physically demanding work. This frees up the employees’ time for tasks such as scanning labels or moving small load carriers (SLC) in the incoming and outgoing goods areas.
