Logistics Division: VIEROL AG Logistics Centre
We supply our quality products to more than 125 countries. This is only made possible by an outstanding logistics structure.
An excellent data management system allows us to provide a particularly fast delivery: orders received by 17.00 Monday to Thursday and by 16:30 on Fridays reach their recipients in Germany the next morning, on weekdays, and in Europe within 48 hours.

The VIEROL Academy, our teaching and presentation centre, is currently being constructed on the premises of the logistics warehouse in Rastede. In the future, product presentations and training will be provided for our clients and our employees in the 370 m² VIEROL Academy. The Academy is expected to be finished in 2018.
Since 2012 we have been generating our own environmentally friendly electricity: on the roof of the VIEROL logistics centre is a 4,000 m² photovoltaic system, which covers the entire power requirements at the Rastede site. Furthermore, in July 2015 we converted the entire logistics centre to LED lighting. All the conventional fluorescent tubes were replaced with approximately 1,600 LED tubes.
Thanks to these measures, we are able to save around 335.000 kWh yearly, as the LED lights only consume 169,000 kWh. In addition to the significant decrease in electricity costs, employees also benefit from the pleasant light conditions at work – the LEDs provide a daylight-like lighting with improved colour reproduction.
Through the implementation of sustainable energy, VIEROL AG was granted with Energy Efficiency Award of the City of Oldenburg in February 2014.
