Instead of giving dry facts and official information from the event, I will instead write about the fact that something special could be experienced during it. I felt proud to participate in such an opening. It is the highest distribution center in Poland and one of the highest distribution centers in Europe. It can accommodate 230 thousand devices of large household appliances, but above all, it is completely automated. No man works in it every day – even though up to 1500 packages can be transferred to transport within an hour.
I am genuinely glad that a Polish company with traditions has been successfully operating in an extremely competitive market since 1945. After all, there are few Polish business export successes. We appreciate it when the Solaris bus takes us from the airport to the center in Dubai, and in New York’s Times Square we see the Max Factor boutique shining from neon lights. Amica is also such a company for me. I appreciate it all the more because it was not taken over by one of the Western giants – on the contrary, it takes over previously competing brands, such as the British CDA or the Danish Gram.
Whoever watches the conference will surely see this pride. Interestingly, the event took place at the mezzanine of the warehouse, in addition at an impressive height. The climax was the “bottle dance”, the moment when the robots doing the whole (!) warehouse work began to move in specially programmed choreography. It was a unique sight, because from the day after the event no one from outside can enter the facility. I only breathed when I and my journalists could get some fresh air on the roof of the High Storage Warehouse. The height of almost 50 meters is a good observation point for Wronki and nearby towns.
And if you were interested in the technological thread in this project, be sure to watch a video report from the extremely difficult operation, which was the transport of stacker cranes weighing 30 tons each.
