Automatic high bay warehouse for BMW Hams Hall

AFT Group & Daifuku deliver customized turnkey solution for new engine exhaust system (EES) to BMW Hams Hall, UK

Over 350,000 engines are produced annually at the BMW Hams Hall plant. These are subsequently assembled at the various BMW sites around the world.

To prepare for the future, BMW has decided to build a new, fully automated engine warehouse in Hams Hall. The AFT Group, in cooperation with Daifuku, was commissioned as general contractor to deliver a turnkey solution. Next to an existing building, a 7-aisle high-bay warehouse with robot station and picking area will be built. An electric floor conveyor will be used as a link to the new warehouse. Completion will be in 2023.
