Convoi installed a brand new 110 ton tile press at Royal Dutch Mosa in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The press had to be installed while the immediate surroundings were operational. The 110 ton press had to handled with just 10 mm to spare.


In addition to a large rotary press, royal printers Em. de Jong in Baarle-Nassau (NL) also works with a sheet-fed offset press. Convoi has carried out a great deal of installation and removal operations for the printers in the past, with work commissioned by Tetterode Nederland. This time, work carried out by Convoi was commissioned directly by KBA. Em. de Jong Printers had urged KBA to have installation of the press effectuated by Convoi, because of their positive experiences thus far.

The combination of such praise and a competitive price resulted in Convoi being given the contract from German-based KBA for the installation of the Compacta 408. Convoi has done this kind of work frequently in the past, for example, for one of Em de Jong’s sister companies, Janssen/Pers in Gennep. With 4 experienced engineers, a 400-tonne lifting system and a 12-tonne fork-lift fitted with a hydraulic arm, the entire project was completed within the space of just a few days.

Both Royal Printing Em. de Jong and the client KBA were extremely satisfied. Since, 2 printing presses have been installed in Kiev (Ukraine), likewise on the instructions of KBA.


In preparation of the production of parts for the XC60 model at Volvo Cars in Ghent (Belgium), Convoi was asked to submit a quotation to KUKA in Augsburg – Germany for the dismantling of a UB3 area. This was the very first time that KUKA gave Convoi a chance to prove itself as this request came from KUKA directly. With some 3,500 employees across 15 different countries it is safe to say that KUKA is a serious player in the automotive industry.

We were given 5 weeks to clear the entire area and to complete the contract in full. No mean feat, as the area in question was roughly the size of a soccer field, subdivided into 2 sections, full of robots, 7th axes, conveyors across 2 floors, safety gates and robot tables. Health and safety regulations had to be followed to the letter. At that, there was the 2-shift production in the adjoining areas to be taken into consideration.

The equipment that needed to be removed had to be stored at various locations throughout the plant. Some of the equipment earmarked for reuse remained on level UB3, while some of it had to be lifted out, via a platform, with a 25-ton crane Convoi Germany had supplied, and loaded onto lorries before being transported to KUKA Augsburg for modification prior to reuse. The remainder had to be taken out of the building with that same crane and lowered into scrap containers.

Project completed, we were told that Convoi could take a bow for the professional and meticulous way the whole assignment had been accomplished.


For some years now, Convoi has had the privilege of being contracted by Leybold Optics, with locations in Dresden and Alzenau (Germany), when any of their clients need installations dismantled, transported and reassembled. This time around, we were asked to move several vertical and horizontal coating machines. Of late, Convoi obtained quite a number of contracts to move and install installations to and in China, the USA and Germany (Berlin). But as no two installations are ever the same, clients keep relying on Convoi’s inventiveness to stabilize, construct and assemble this equipment.

As both height and floor-bearing capacity were at a premium, the components could not be moved by crane and our 100-ton hoisting system proved to be the answer.

Moving a 435-cm wide installation through a 455-cm wide gate wouldn’t be a picnic at the best of times, let alone when the item in question also turns out to be 6 metres long. Amid great public interest, we managed to cross that hurdle without a hiccup. Now, a convoy of this size always travels under police escort. Two days before we were scheduled to set off we learned that all special transports had been temporarily suspended due to the fact that President Barack Obama was about to arrive in the City of Dresden. As deadlines are sacred to Convoi, we decided to pull out all the stops so that we would be ready for road one day early. And thus it happened; not even the President of the United States is allowed to stand between Convoi and its deadlines!


With a total value of EUR 100 million and a lead-time of 3 years, the construction of a Proton Therapy Centre in the University Hospital in Essen (North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany) represents the biggest medical project in German history.

For IBA, based in Louvain-La-Neuve (Belgium), Convoi has installed a Cyclotron plus 3 connected isocentric, rotating “patient chambers” called gantries (diameter of 10 metres and a weight of 120 tonnes).

IBA delivers solutions with unrivalled precision in the field of cancer diagnostics and treatment. Proton therapy is the most advanced form of clinical treatment for cancer through radiation. There are all but a few of such systems in the world and the system at the University Hospital in Essen is the first such Proton Therapy Centre in Europe.

The heart of the system is the Cyclotron (particle accelerator) consisting of two sections, each weighing 120 tonnes.

Moreover, 26 containers were shipped by Convoi to Essen from Lier (B), plus a further 51 crates from the port of Voerde (D). Assembly of the system took around 23 weeks. This involved both general and precision assembly and the connection of all E-cabinets. In 2009, the first patients will be able to start benefiting from the new system.


Convoi completed a mammoth relocation job for Shell, one in which our entire range of skills was put to the test. Workstations, technical installations, chemicals, archives, hazardous substances and drums, the whole plant had to be moved lock, stock and barrel to the new SRTCA (Shell Research Technology Centre Amsterdam) site. An 800-metre move which, including the 15 months we spent on preparations, took a total of 20 months to complete.

Everything had to be prepared meticulously as the stringency of the Shell work methods and procedures is second to none. Safety and communication being of the essence, there were always appointed safety persons and a health and safety expert on site. To ensure smooth communication between Convoi and Shell, a special Relocation Service Desk officer was appointed who gathered all the Convoi and Shell queries and kept all the Shell staff posted on what was about to be moved to where and when.

During that period we moved 1,400 entire workstations, including cupboards, archives and such like, not to mention glassware and oil baths, 45,000 kg of hazardous substances with all the relevant documentation and 800 drums from the stores.

The industrial side of this relocation project involved moving some 1,000 IDs, which could be anything from a simple laboratory arrangement to a complete 85-ton outdoor installation. Every ID had to be released, cleared of all liquids and gasses before it could be electrically disconnected, all in accordance with the pre-arranged plans.

All in all, this relocation project was an extremely complicated and taxing one. Yet, it was also a very satisfying one as a large-scale satisfaction survey among Shell staff showed that our efforts had been rewarded with a very impressive average score of 90%!


ERIKS is a stock-exchange quoted technical trading company. Convoi helped relocate their sites at Heerhugowaard and Alkmaar to a brand-new building on the Boekelemeer industrial estate, just outside Alkmaar.

The key part of the operation was the relocation of the warehouses. This involved the transfer of 100,000 items of stock, corresponding to 20,000 metres of pallet racking and 5,000 pallets.

Our staff was directed to the correct location in the new building by means of TOs. On arrival there, the items in question were unpacked. Convoi then scanned the items to read them in to the Materials Management Automation System. This enabled the accounting procedure to be likewise completed as part of the move. The range of products at ERIKS is extremely diverse. In addition to normal warehouse boxes, many oversized items were also transferred.

A specific relocation plan was also devised for these kinds of products, which included such items as elongated tubing and rolls of rubber or plastic sheeting. This was done to minimise damage and speed up transfer of items. The aim was that ERIKS’ customers would suffer as little disruption as possible from this mammoth operation. For this reason, Convoi carried out all aspects of relocation outside ERIKS’ normal working hours. A detailed schedule was drawn up beforehand. To minimise all risks, even a trial run move was organised. This was done to test the speed of the transfer.

An essential part of the project was the relocation of the offices, the server room and plant. These were moved separately from the warehouse items by specialist teams.


Convoi has also had a base in the United Kingdom since 2008. This was the logical step to take in view of the many assignments we were contracted to do at various locations across the United Kingdom. With its automotive sector and its wealth of other industries it is one country where the Convoi staff involved in industrial relocations feel very much at home. Installing an MRI scanner was something the British Convoi team had never done before. But, of course, they were able to draw on the know-how of their colleagues who have years of experience installing Phillips scanners in, literally, all four corners of the world. To hospitals, a new MRI scanner is usually something they have been waiting for for ages, not to mention a hefty investment. So, it is little wonder that the local press is often invited to report on this happy event. To us, it was one more reason to ensure that everything would proceed without the slightest hiccup, because in a way it also generates publicity for our company. According to the Stobhill team, taking the pictures took longer than installing the scanner!

Needless to say, it all comes down to preparations, experience and using the correct methods and procedures. The locations would have been visited in advance, discussions would have been held with the hospital’s general and technical support services and the people from Phillips and the risks would have been charted. And it is not until the plan of action has been finally approved that the actual work commences.

Installing a scanner is precision work. By and large, hospitals haven’t really given a whole lot of thought to the accessibility of the MRI scanner’s actual location. And Stobhill was no exception. As the scanner had to be hoisted into the building at a height of 8 metres, scaffolding was required and a local hoisting firm was hired. Once the press photographs were done and dusted, we finalized the installation of yet another huge magnet.


Convoi was asked to move 7 robot islands from Villers-la-Montagne (France) to Seraing (Belgium). Convoi was subsequently asked by Magnetto (CLN Group) to return the same islands to Eurostamp in France. This was due to the fact that subsidies in Belgium were stopped and the surplus of production capacity at Eurostamp France. Convoi had the advantage of familiarity with both locations.

The team that worked on this project was divided into three sub teams, the ‘electrical’ team, the ‘dismantling’ team and the ‘reassembly’ team. The lead time was two weeks; by then everything had to be up and running in France. In 5 days time, 14 truck loads were loaded and unloaded and the reassembly was completed within 3 days, including finalising the details. Therefore the lead time was significantly shorter than anticipated, to the full satisfaction of our client.


In Costa Rica, in the proximity of San Jose, the Conti Temic company set up a plant in 2007/2008. This factory was to be used to manufacture special electronic components for automatic transmissions in the motor industry for the American market. An installation line and various bond and laser automata had been delivered to the factory specifically for this purpose. Just as production was to be launched in November 2008, the worldwide economic crisis sparked the collapse of the entire motor market including its suppliers. This meant that all the orders placed with Conti Temic Costa Rica were cancelled. The Conti group decided to relocate to Nuremberg all the facilities which had been assembled by the end of the year but on which a complete product ready for launch had not yet been manufactured. As Convoi GmbH has completed a large number of orders for Continental AG over recent years to their total satisfaction, we once again won the tender for this relocation.

It turned out to be a challenging project with many unforeseen twists. Only 3 days before the start of the project, Costa Rica was hit by a devastating earthquake measuring 6,2 on the Righter scale. The state disaster control CNE declared a state of emergency in the areas concerned. The authorities warned for aftershock and landslides. After endless telephone calls, it was decided that the relocation deadline should not be postponed as the airport, the city centre of San José and the Conti factory including its access roads had not been affected by the damage. However, since our tool boxes containing all the equipment were delayed at Frankfurt airport because of the relief flights, a local building centre had to be found to provide us with essential tools. This was particularly important since both shipping deadlines with the corresponding defined loading capacities had been firmly reserved. The final relocation volumes corresponded to 40 sea containers. The reassembly of plant components was done at the Conti Temic factory in Nuremberg. Containers left every day from the harbour in Hamburg for the Conti premises where they were immediately received by Convoi and unloaded after passing through customs. All reassembly work was done within the appointed time frame, in spite of a number of obstacles. Another satisfying project for Continental AG.


The reason for HP Nederland moving its activities to a central site in Amstelveen (The Netherlands) was a consequence of its worldwide policy for consolidating its business locations. With the introduction of HPWT (Hewlett Packard Workplace Transformation), the HP office in Amstelveen has a highly efficient organisation. Flexible workstations are available, and most HP staff are also given the opportunity to work from home which means that time lost through commuting can be minimised. Preparations for the move were taken in hand by Convoi relocation managers a year beforehand.

As a result of previous projects, Convoi already had a fair idea of the furniture requirements. Aided by the input of Convoi, HP was able to draw up a plan for the new layout and order new furniture accordingly.

Phased plan and timetable

All HP buildings were still in use. This meant that Convoi had to devise an ingenious phase-by-phase operation. After the phased plan and timetable had been approved, Convoi relocation managers went about coordinating and effectuating the project with complete independence. Coordination with security, cleaning companies, construction contractors, furniture suppliers and all communication with the relocation coordinators likewise fell under the remit of Convoi’s responsibilities.

Eventually, no more than a few weeks later, all 2,000 workstations had been transferred in line with the new Warm-Welcome* concept. Likewise, laboratories with vulnerable server equipment, meeting rooms and all internal storage areas underwent relocation. Convoi ICTServices was responsible for installing the complete cable infrastructure. This involved (dis)connection of all computers and peripherals and the laying of electricity and network cables in floors so that these were no longer visible.

For more information, contact Convoi Project Relocations and ask for the Warm-Welcome presentation.

Convoi has been appointed as the sole and regular provider of any relocation work the University of Amsterdam (UvA) will be undertaking over the next 4 years. With 23,000 students and 4,700 members of staff, UvA is one of the largest general universities in Europe. It operates from some 100 historical and modern buildings, spread all across Amsterdam.
Within UvA, moving is an ongoing process. Removal jobs range from simply relocating a number of workstations to large-scale projects, where an entire building has to be inventoried. In addition, there are also the special assignments which can encompass anything from moving laboratory equipment to art collections, libraries and archives.

One of the projects we completed so far is the relocation of FNWI (Faculty of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Informatics). It soon became clear that this was a real Convoi job. It involved moving:

  • Entire offices;
  • Laboratories, among which furniture, cupboards containing chemicals, glassware, small (sensitive and valuable) apparatus and instruments;
  • Workshops, among which the metalwork and woodwork workshops and a glassworks;
  • Research departments full of unusual, specific and highly technical equipment, where every device was given its own “passport”, complete with photograph and details such as the disassembly and reassembly times, transport requirements, value, weight and dimensions;
  • Library, stores and archives.

Based on the evaluations, we can safely conclude that UvA selected the perfect relocation partner.


Early October we entered into the last phase of the removal of the production facilities from Arnhem to Oosterhout. With the last phase now completed our “Corus” year has drawn to a close. This particular contract consisted of 4 subprojects, i.e. :

Phase 1: December – February.
Relocation of the PE and Coating Line from Oosterhout (NL) to Corby (UK)

We embarked on this move just before the 2009 Holiday season because Oosterhout had to be cleared before the end of last year. Reassembling the lines in Corby did not run as smoothly as we had expected. The winter weather that hit England had not been seen in over a decade and our assembly team was really put to the test over there.

Phase 2: May – June.
Relocation of the M16 pipe-welding line from Arnhem to Oosterhout (NL)

Once phase 1 was finalized we started on the preparations for phase 2, which seemed to be easier since it only involved 1 line instead of 2, as was the case in England. Though, nothing was further from the truth for the organization and execution of this particular phase turned out to be a very complex affair on account of the many subcontractors milling around the hall and the challenging site conditions (a.o. no hardened floor in the hall). It proved to be a tough job.

Phase 3: August.
Relocation of the M18 pipe-welding line & Slitter from Arnhem to Oosterhout (NL)

Preparations and execution should have become routine by now you would think, but, on this occasion, the summer holidays came to throw a spanner in the works. With many people on annual leave, staffing levels were far from ideal and because we had a few larger projects to complete, planning became a challenge. In the end, we completed phase 3 earlier than expected.

Phase 4: October.
Relocation of the M14 & M15 pipe-welding lines and partial reconversion to KV34

No sooner had we phase 3 done and dusted than the project team got down to the 4th and last phase. This last phase was completed at the end of October and yet again we were reminded of the fact that there is no such thing as ‘routine’ when you’re involved in the industrial relocation business. Convoi can look back on a nerve-wrecking and successful ‘Corus’ year in which we also witnessed Corus Tubes B.V. change its name intoTata Steel Nederland Tubes B.V.

We are by no means exaggerating if we say that our industrial relocation team moved heaven and earth to bring this project to a successful conclusion, without accidents or damage, and that’s what it was all about for Corus!


The Amsterdam municipal archives contain the city’s historical documents, including a historical-cartographic section with millions of maps, drawings, prints, a library and extensive sound, film and photo archives – all stretching to no less than 40 kilometres. The municipal archives literally burgeoned as a result of the various interconnected depots at Amsteldijk. Ultimately, plans were put forward to accommodate the municipal archives in the ABN-Amro’s old head-office at De Bazel. After extensive renovation work at De Bazel, Convoi took on responsibility for this mega-project.

It involved 40,000 metres of shelving and accompanying archives. 5,000 archive racks were also relocated. The archives consisted of a diversity of books, archive boxes, portfolios, film cans, rolls, folders and glass plates, the latter which hold old parchment files in place. An additional challenge was that the move had to go hand in hand with a complete reorganisation of the archiving system. At the old site, different types and formats were mixed up with each other. At the new site they will eventually be reclassified according to type and size.

To minimise disruption in access to the municipal archives, it was Convoi’s task to transfer everything in the space of 40 days. This meant that around 1,000 archive containers, each 1m in length, would be transferred each day, as well as the accompanying racks. In the first instance, the inventory of all archives was adapted to meet the logistical requirements. This was translated into a detailed timetable. A great deal of care centred on the interdependence of the various types of archive, their format and the (re)organisation of racks.

The timetable also included some leeway for possible setbacks and likewise a risk analysis was carried out. Progress of the transfer was monitored every day, so enabling optimum coordination of the various removal flows.


Convoi was commissioned by Faiveley of Remscheid to relocate a total of 50 machines from Remscheid to Witten (Germany). Faiveley Transport Group produces brake discs and coupling mechanisms for trains, including the French TGV. The big challenge was to move 4 large machines (14 to 25 tonnes each) from the third storey to the ground floor 24 metres below. By attaching electrical hoists to the lifting beams on the 400 tonne lifting gear, it was possible to lower these machines in safety through the various levels to the ground floor below.

Smaller machines could be lifted outside through openings in the roof construction by our Convoi site in Hagen (Germany). The machines were transported, connected electrically and mechanically, re-aligned and made ready for production by Convoi. In view of the tight schedule, a number of teams were deployed simultaneously on the various machines. One team, responsible for dismantling a machine in Remscheid, assembled the machine the very next day after being transported and delivered to Witten.

During the dismantling phase extensive consultation took place with the client, since production was still in full swing. Raw materials were supplied and (semi) fabricated goods dispatched whilst cranes and other removal equipment were being installed. The planning was crucial: machines which had been moved outside had to be loaded immediately onto trucks and taken off the premises, so that logistical operations at Faiveley could continue unabated.


JDR Cable Systems produce special braided steel-wire cables used primarily at sea. The company supplies airgun cables worldwide. An airgun cable consists of a hollow core through which compressed air is driven. These airgun cables are suspended at a depth of around 300 metres undersea and are towed by specially equipped vessels. The cables must be high-strength and waterproof. Convoi was commissioned by JDR to transport 50 production machines from 3 sites in Capelle aan den IJssel to new production facilities at Krimpen aan de Lek, covering an area of 20,000 m2.

The highlight of the move was the unloading and installation of a marine cable production machine for submarine cables from Italy. With a total length of 60 metres and a weight of 150 tonnes, overland transport was not an option. The heaviest part of the machine was delivered by pontoon. The machine is used to fit the submarine cables with steel wire. The heaviest section was transported by water, because otherwise, it was likely that the Zaag bridge would give way under the weight of the machine.

What’s more, the diameter was so large that it would not fit across the bridge. The cable machine, manufactured in Italy, was put on shore in Krimpen aan de Lek in two sections. A floating barge was used to carefully unload the machine, because otherwise it would have run aground as soon as the tide went out. The floating barge positioned the cable machine on two industrial rollers. Using lifting gear with a 600 tonne capacity, this leviathan was positioned at a slightly tilted angle precisely onto the rollers and moved. The machine was then installed into its final position.

Below you can see a video of the relocation of the production facilities of the Aston Martin Rapide.


Under the slogan ‘Operation One Location’, the two sites of the Martini Ziekenhuis were relocated to a single brand-new, state-of-the-art hospital. Following extensive consultation and through a combination of expertise on the part of all those involved, the move was planned in such a way that this could take place entirely when hospital was operating at reduced levels. This meant that the hospital was rehoused during the Christmas break. Because of the large volumes, work was also carried out at weekends.

During the preliminary phase, a comprehensive timetable was put together. An inventory was performed on all departments by the Convoi Project Manager. In addition to the volume, each department was asked to indicate any special requirements in respect of the transfer of patients, equipment, (sterile) appliances, medicines and furniture. Removal and packing materials were delivered long before the move actually took place. During the actual move, there was daily contact between the Convoi Project Manager and the Project Manager at the Martini hospital. For any move of this type, additional attention has to focus on the transfer of patients. The Martini hospital was responsible for moving all patients on the wards, with priority being given to the children’s ward. The detailed schedule took into account the likelihood of unexpected additional patient transfers Special ambulances, equipped with heating, all necessary power and oxygen lines and other medical appliances, were arranged for the transfer of patients.

In addition to general wards, operating theatres, the A&E department and out-patient clinics were also moved.


It isn’t quite 10 years since we last moved the headquarters of Yokogawa in the city of Amersfoort in the space of 2 weekends. This time around though, we were faced with a real challenge. Those exact same offices and the ones in Apeldoorn had to be moved, lock stock and barrel, to their new state-of-the-art building, all in the course of 1 single weekend!

Aside from the 650 work stations, the relocation project involved:

  • The production area (machinery, the glassworks, glass-sawing mill etc.)
  • The laboratories
  • The spare-parts warehouse (including packing and unpacking)
  • The archives (including packing and unpacking)
  • The stores
  • The staging (installation cq testing areas with 19” racks and ICT equipment)
  • The Hot Stand-By (the client-service centre)
  • The calibration areas (sensitive measuring equipment)
  • Shipping and stocks.

All in all, well over 3,000 m³. We could commence on Friday and by first thing Monday morning, Yokogawa was supposed to be fully operational again.

While our quotation was being considered, we worked out a detailed move schedule with corresponding lead times. Through a clever inter-alignment of the various parts, the deployment of specialized teams (Project Relocations & Industrial Relocations) and night shifts, Convoi was in a position to stand over the timeframe imposed.

In the end, the Utrecht Planning Division accurately assigned all the people asked for to the different parts of the project. A few days prior to the big move, a start was made on the company’s non-critical areas (archives and stocks). Slowly but surely we were getting ready for the big bang…

Friday night, with all hands on deck, we knuckled down to the big move. The train had left the station and there was no stopping it now. By Saturday night, Convoi was ready to tie up a few loose ends!


At the end of April, the company “Het Klokhuis” contacted us enquiring whether we could fly some 20 cigarette machines, with an overall weight of 60 ton, to Zimbabwe on behalf of West Point Associates in Guernsey – the Channel Islands.

“Het Klokhuis”, a company that specializes in the maintenance of tobacco machines, had been asked by West Point to check these machines and to disconnect them electrically. A project leader working for our client accompanied us to Zimbabwe to reconnect the machines and get them ready for production again.

Convoi was a.o. charged with the task of loading the machines with our electrical Valla crane and driving them to the All-Pack packaging company in Lier (B). There, they were duly packaged in timber crates, ready for transport by air. From Lier the machines would then travel in their crates to the cargo airline B-Cargo in Zaventem, from where they would be flown to Zimbabwe.

While the machines were at the packaging company we learned that B-Cargo had applied for chapter 11. There was only one thing for it and that was to divert to Amsterdam at the last minute and to load our crates onto a MartinAir plane. Luckily, this delay did not cause any problems and the machines ended up in Zimbabwe as planned.

In Zimbabwe, the client collected the cargo from the airport, drove it to his premises and literally used might and main to get everything into place. And, as there was no Valla crane around, it all came down to muscle power. But in spite of that, the machines ended up in their new abode, all duly connected. One more international project with a happy ending…


On behalf of Siemens AG in Nurnberg, Convoi moved an entire vehicle-conversion production line, complete with ovens and test station from one Siemens location to another, some 10 km down the road.
The first job to be tackled was dismantling the oven which weighed a staggering 65 ton. In view of its weight and size, a special truck was required to transport the oven to its new location. Our job wasn’t made easier by the fact that the roads at the new site weren’t quite ready yet. The client was also forced to move the deadlines several times for the building works weren’t progressing as quickly as originally planned.

Once the preparations for the dismantling and reassembly of the punching machine, binding machine, a test station and the packaging section were completed we dismantled another 2 ovens. Following a few structural adjustments, we managed to install both ovens on Saturday. In the meantime a number of line parts were moved, requiring 2 extra special transports. All in all, 22 industrial relocation specialists were involved in this particular project.

Convoi GmbH was commissioned with the relocation of Landerer GmbH & Co. KG from Neckarsulm to the new plant in Neuenstadt am Kocher. Since 1837 Landerer has combined tradition with the innovation and creativity of high-tech, twenty-first century folding box production. This is where packaging for cosmetics, pharmaceutical and confectionery products is manufactured. Landerer is part of the french Groupe AUTAJON.

After costly and complicated preparatory work and project planning, as well as the drafting of a detailed performance schedule five Convoi assemblers finally embarked on the relocation. In order to avoid any loss of production, compliance with the precise schedule was of paramount importance. Full resumption of production at the new location had to be possible within nine weeks. Various Spanthera stamping and punching machines weighing between 20 and 25 tonnes as well as glue lines were dismantled and reassembled in parallel. Cutting machines, pile turners and an intaglio printing machines were also relocated. The special challenge in this project lay in the dismantling, reassembly and commissioning of two- and six-colour printing presses, for which we needed our 40 tonne lifting system.

Up to 26 employees of Convoi GmbH were deployed in this project. On completion this project will be used as a reference for the relocation of printing machines.


As a result of production of household appliances being discontinued at AEG-Electrolux in Nuremberg, 24 presses with accompanying equipment, loading stations, material and instrument exchange systems had to be relocated to the UK, France and Spain. The weight of the machines varied from 18 to 94 tonnes. A key factor for AEG was that the main contractor takes on full responsibility, including overseeing of sub-contracting work.

After the project office had worked out a detailed plan, AEG’s purchasing department was so convinced, that Convoi was given this task. The largest press, with a weight of 94 tonnes, a height of 8 metres and a width of 5 metres, had to be dismantled, transferred from Nuremberg to Rothemburg and there reassembled. This meant that all electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical components had to be put together and reinstalled.

The press was delivered ready for production without incident or damage. Another press had to be transported to Revin in France.


Convoi has been appointed as the sole and regular provider of any relocation work the University of Amsterdam (UvA) will be undertaking over the next 4 years. With 23,000 students and 4,700 members of staff, UvA is one of the largest general universities in Europe. It operates from some 100 historical and modern buildings, spread all across Amsterdam.

  • Library, stores and archives.

Based on the evaluations, we can safely conclude that UvA selected the perfect relocation partner.
