Pallet racks from TOPREGAL for Xucker
Under the brand name XUCKER, the Berlin-based company of the same name markets natural sweeteners with no regrets. The sweets are stored on TOPREGAL pallet racks until they are dispatched to nutrition-conscious customers throughout Germany.
A sweet treasure is hidden in the from the outside inconspicuous warehouse buildings in Berlin-Schöneberg. There, Xucker GmbH has rented its company headquarters with three warehouses that merge into one another and a total area of around 2,400 square meters. Around 50 tons of xylitol and erythritol and products manufactured with them are stored here. What sounds like chemistry and laboratory work are sugar alternatives that are increasingly replacing the classic crystal sugar in Germany and Europe as "Xucker Basic", "Xucker Premium" or "Xucker Light - Better Sweet". "Of the sugar alternatives produced by fermentation, we sell about 40 percent to private customers and about 60 percent go directly to retailers without intermediate storage. "informs the managing director Christian D. Weiten.
Xucker is already listed with dm, Rossmann and Edeka. In order picking, the employees reach into the cartons standing in 2.5 m high storage racks. This is how they compile the orders from the online shop. In the two connected halls, in the actual warehouse, there are five and six double rows of pallet racks from TOPREGAL, each 15 m long.
We became aware of the shelving dealer from Filderstadt "through the Internet research", Patrizia Rouba, assistant to the Xucker management, looks back. For the construction of the pallet racks, Xucker used the Assembly service from TOPREGAL ...on the job. "It all worked out very well. You could see right away that the three fitters had done this many times before, as well coordinated and concentrated as they had built up the 330 metres of pallet racks". The shelving specialist from Filderstadt not only has a large number of different Heavy duty racks in the product portfolio. Also the assembly service and the annual Shelf Inspection are among them. TOPREGAL arranged for a Berlin engineering office to carry out the obligatory annual inspection of the racks at Xucker.
Since its foundation in May 2010, Xucker GmbH has developed into the largest mail order company for xylitol and xylitol-containing products, such as gelatinous xucker and chocolate, in Germany. Since June 2011, erythritol has also been part of the product range as "Xucker Light". The company has around 35 employees (2018) and achieves total annual sales of 11.7 million euros (2017).
