SLG Kunststoff from Bernau creates numerous training and job opportunities in Buggingen
local community Buggingen - 12.03.2020
The development of the area between Breitenweg and Bundesstraße 3 was decided in Buggingen over ten years ago. From the point of view of the licensing authorities, the area is also ideal for commercial use, extends the existing Breitenweg industrial estate and closes the existing gap between existing buildings and the federal highway.
SLG, a family company with its headquarters in Bernau and a branch in Heitersheim, has developed above average in recent years. For around 40 years, products have been manufactured using an injection molding process for a wide range of applications and customers such as furniture manufacturers, plant engineering and the automotive industry. The location in Buggingen will create 100 new training positions and jobs.
The Buggingen municipal council dealt in detail with the planned settlement of the company in advance. It was particularly important that 100% recyclable products are produced. In addition to recyclable plastics, materials made from 100% renewable raw materials are increasingly being used. The products can be found in countless everyday objects that we cannot do without today. The company firmly rejects "single-use plastic products". The municipal council also endorses this resource-saving position.
Another important decision criterion was that SLG will not emit any odors. As the local council and interested citizens were able to convince themselves during an open house, this is not the case with the injection molding process used. Since the new location is located directly on the main road, high requirements were defined with regard to the exterior facade design and the greening of the property, and the topic of sustainability was also taken into account through a photovoltaic system for power generation.
When it comes to living, Buggingen has therefore been focusing on inner densification and urban development of areas for years. In the commercial area, the focus is on companies that fit into the community and can contribute to positive overall development in the long term. SLG Kunststoff fulfills this requirement. If all construction work goes smoothly, the new building can be occupied at the end of 2020 and production can then begin.
New production and logistics centre

Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH in Buggingen, around 30 kilometers southwest of Freiburg im Breisgau, is building a 10,700 square meter production property with storage and handling areas for SLG Kunststoff GmbH.
"The start of construction has started and we are planning to complete the new hall by the end of 2020," says Jan Dietrich Hempel, Managing Director of Garbe Industrial Real Estate GmbH. The Hamburg-based project developer will build the company property on a plot of almost 21,400 square meters in the "Breitenweg" commercial area. Jan Dietrich Hempel: "The location is conveniently located directly on Bundesstrasse 3 and, if necessary, still has 13,800 square meters of expansion space."
The hall is planned with around 10,000 square meters of usable space for production, storage and handling. There are also a good 700 square meters of office and social space. Six loading gates and four ground-level gates are provided for the smooth entry and exit of the goods. The tenant of the new real estate is the regional injection molding manufacturer SLG Kunststoff. With the move-in in 2021, the family business is bundling administration, production and storage in one location.
"With project development, we are further expanding our activities in our Light Industrial business area, in which we have already realized several of these corporate properties," explains Jan Dietrich Hempel. Objects in this asset class differ from pure logistics properties in that they are usually equipped more extensively for production-related services. These include, for example, more intensive lighting or more complex IT cabling for the digital processes.
"We are investing a total of around 15 million euros in project development," says Jan Dietrich Hempel. This also includes measures to improve sustainability. For example, a photovoltaic system is installed on the roof surface of the company property and the entire building is certified according to the gold standard of the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council).
The SLG takes the initiative with innovative, sustainable transport concepts "C-SERIES".
The trade in e-food demands a lot from the provider: an intuitive and comprehensive information website, a large range of goods, immediate delivery and a friendly service hotline. Favorable prices are also expected from customers.
All parameters must be coordinated efficiently - because the business is only worthwhile if the calculation is optimal. One of the most difficult parameters is the so-called "last mile". Transporting sensitive goods to the end customer undamaged and without interrupting the cold chain also presents major problems for e-food providers. So far there has been a lack of suitable transport systems. So far there is no suitable transport packaging that is prepared for the last mile.
With the "C-SERIES", SLG now offers innovative, sustainable reusable transport refrigerated containers for robust parcel and courier services with cooling performance over several days! Our priority is the transportation of sensitive goods such as refrigerated and frozen goods, pharmaceuticals and life science. The "C-SERIES" clearly distinguishes itself from the state of the art.
In addition to the safe maintenance of the cold chain, environmental and resource conservation should be emphasized by avoiding or reducing (one-way) packaging waste.
The multi-year use of the cooling containers guarantees sustainable investment savings. The SLG realizes the cooling temperatures with differently filled, variably pluggable PCM (Phase Change Material) eutectic battery plates as well as dry ice solutions.
As part of a customer-specific logistics solution, SLG supports e-food online trading with adaptable, individual solutions. Design, type, quality, volume and the realization of the desired cooling temperature in the transport containers can be considered and developed in the context of the overall online trading concept.
As an expert for large containers (long-term partner of IKEA), SLG offers extremely competitive prices and the best quality.
MARKET ANALYSIS DEFINES DEVELOPMENT CRITERIA
The SLG C-SERIES are developed and weighted according to the following criteria: on the one hand, the focus is on cooling performance and reuse, on the other hand, the parameters of shipping, sterilizability, mechanical properties, box geometry and water and dust resistance play a decisive role.
The state of the art are disposable thermo boxes made of EPP or EPS, vacuum insulation panels, plastic boxes with insulation inlets and reusable thermal transport boxes. Above all, the high procurement and disposal costs due to the one-time use for EPS and VIP insulation materials are very inefficient Solution.
SLG C-SERIES IS DIFFERENT
A scoring model in relation to the product properties shows that the SLG transport packaging stands far ahead of the competitors' transport containers. The transport container to be developed surpasses almost all relevant parameters of currently used systems and currently stands out clearly from the previous state of the art.
The USPs at a glance:
HDPE use instead of PP -> better diffusion properties and shock resistance at low temperatures
Food safety and certifiable
Easy manual and machine cleaning
Sterilizable (radiation sterilization and gas sterilization)
Dry ice ventilation in the lidDust and waterproof according to IP 67
2-component system (lid and container)
Nestable variant for reducing transport costs in reverse logistics
Modular and adaptable insulation properties depending on the application
User does not come into contact with the insulation material

The company SLG-Kunststoff exhibits the works of the Strasbourg artist Marc Felten in their rooms.
Badische Newspaper - 30.10.2019
BERNAU. When autumn arrives, many art lovers are looking forward to a new exhibition in the rooms of SLG Kunststoff GmbH. This beloved tradition has existed for 19 years now, each with examples of current art. On Friday it was time again when Dieter Stockkamp opened this year's exhibition "Marc Felten, Strasbourg".
Once again, Stockkamp was able to greet many guests from near and far, more than in a long time, he found. His special greetings went to the artist Marc Felten, who had come to Bernau from Strasbourg, and thanks to the exhibition maker and sculptor Jürgen Knubben, who had chosen the artist since the beginning, organized the exhibition and gave an introduction to his works.
This time, the guests were invited to a French opening, with Gerard Delaye, a French musician for the musical accompaniment, and with French specialties, created by Bernau's "Rössle".
Marc Felten is through and through Alsatian. Jürgen Knubben introduced the artist in his introduction, that he was born in Strasbourg, lives in this city to this day and still speaks Alsatian. The Alsatian language was an Alemannic dialect, he noted, why his language was so well understood in the Black Forest.
The eventful history of Alsace has remained visible to the people and many things of everyday life to this day, which also explains why many artists in this region are successful not only in France but also in Germany, the political back and forth also shapes the work of the Artist, said Knubben. They are a little rebellious, but at the same time homeland-related. So the stork plays an important role for them, which comes in spring and goes again in autumn.
In the case of Felten, the stork is a hybrid, the head comes from the bird, the rest is human. And then the creature - or rather creation - is still pregnant. Actually, Felten's pictures are exclusively dedicated to the phenomenon of hybrid beings, the chimeras, said Knubben. In his pictures, the bull, the deer, the eagle or the monkey, the zebra or rhinoceros, especially with their heads, but also whole bodies, are always combined with not insignificant parts of human figures, male or female. Perhaps he was keen to artistically implement a harmony between the creatures, which act so differently, speculated Knubben, because humans and animals have become so far apart from each other that humans no longer live with animals, but control them. Knubben described the ambivalent relationship between humans and animals and said that one could see a kind of equality in Felten's imagery, humans and animals met at eye level, yet the artist did not ignore natural differences.
The colors would dominate in Felten's works, some of which were glaringly and extensively applied, provided with graphic elements. Marc Felten calls himself an Expressionist painter, Knubben said, but he uses the color choices of the pop artists to the same extent. The result was an unmistakable signature, his pictures signaled a great deal of optimism and joie de vivre, the laudator added, and wished the guests to immerse themselves in Marc Felten's painting and graphics. In and with his pictures, he was a gifted storyteller and at the same time an endearing person. "Let us all be a little Alsatian this evening," said Knubben in conclusion, which was rewarded with much applause.
Info: The exhibition can be visited from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the SLG's working hours, Monday to Friday.
