In action for the secret service

Does the CIA office in Berlin have a mole? This is the suspicion that an American agent pursues, investigating in the world of international secret services. Always present in the background: transport equipment from fetra. The trolleys and carts are part of the setting for the political thriller “Berlin Station” featured on American Pay-TV in 2016 and later on Netflix in Germany. And behind the scenes, too, the products of the German manufacturer from Borgholzhausen proved to be valuable helpers.
Tested and found to be excellent

In-house logistics solutions must be user-friendly and efficient, before anything else. Yet, when their styling even matches the corporate colour code, they meet virtually all criteria that modern industrial operations require. A good example for combining functionality and design in a contemporary manner is the German company SSV-Technik GmbH based in Wutha-Farnroda, Thuringia. Established in 1993, the successful systems provider has always specialised in future-oriented technologies. When it comes to intra-logistics transport solutions, shelved trolleys from fetra are the products of choice that SSV-Technik uses for their own in-house needs and sells to customers. Since fetra also started to manufacture them in anthracite grey as an alternative to the trademark blue, the equipment is now even better suited to meet the requirements of a modern working environment in addition to the technical specifications.
Changing tyres without straining your back

In Germany, musculoskeletal disorders are the main cause of incapacity to work, accounting for average production losses of 10 billion Euros per year. This was revealed by a report of Germany’s Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. As primary cause for this development, the report identified harmful effects of improper physical workloads in daily work operations, for example when lifting and carrying heavy loads. In real life, this primarily affects employees in automotive workshops and dealerships. When tyres need to be swapped with the changing seasons, like now in October, service operators literally need to put their back into it. Markus Fissenewert, owner of the dealership Autohaus Hentze in Gütersloh, has found a solution to take some strain off his employees: tyre trucks from fetra. “Now there is no more heavy lifting of tyres, the employee can simply pick them up horizontally from the floor and cart them away”, he says. Autohaus Pietsch in Melle also uses the trucks and trolleys from fetra to protect their employees’ backs both in the warehouse and in workshop operations.
