  • Expansion as basis for future growth
  • Lifetime Services: Maintenance and spare parts package for maximum availability

(Marchtrenk, May 25, 2021) Abena is making use of TGW expertise in expanding its logistics centre. At its headquarters in southern Denmark, the manufacturer of health and medical products is installing an energy-efficient conveyor system for cartons, trays and soft packages (polybags). The facility is scheduled to open by summer 2021.

Founded in the town of Aabenraa in 1953, today Abena is one of the leading manufacturers of health and medical supplies. The family-owned business operates production locations in Denmark, Sweden and France and supplies hospitals, nursing homes and end customers in more than 80 countries.

Customised Solution

To put the foundation for future growth in place, Abena is expanding its existing distribution centre by adding an energy-efficient conveyor system network. TGW KingDrive® unites the individual functional areas, transporting cartons, trays and soft packages – and does so quickly, efficiently and reliably. The innovative technology uses gearbox-free, maintenance-free motorised rollers and combines high performance with a long service life and low Total Cost of Ownership.

In collaboration with Abena, TGW has developed a customised concept for making optimal use of the available floor space. “We couldn't be more pleased to support the customer and the cooperation to create the solution jointly with Ole Cordes, Head of Technical Operations and Support,” emphasises Hans Gjers, Business Development Manager at TGW Scandinavia.

Lifetime Services package


Abena also takes advantage of TGW's service expertise. The Lifetime Services contract includes a maintenance and spare parts package and ensures maximum system availability during ongoing operation.
