Employees at WÖHR are getting the desired jab

In July, the Friolzheim company WÖHR, worldwide popular specialist in park lifts, combi-lifts, park-safes, multi-parkers, and bicycle car parks, has carried out a SARS-CoV-2 vaccination programme at its company premises in Ölgrabenstraße. A total of 51 employees and family members received the sought-after jab with the mRNA vaccine from BioNTech, which was administered by the company doctor. WÖHR HR Manager Barbara Riede was extremely satisfied with the success of the campaign: “The employees’ responses to our offering were enthusiastic throughout. Vaccination at work saves trips and effort to make the necessary arrangements elsewhere. We even had staff from our Munich branch come here to get the vaccination. We hope that with our programme we are able to contribute to a speedy end of the pandemic.”

Where ordinarily staff are working on innovative parking solutions, the organisational team at WÖHR has built a small vaccination lane. A room for the rest period after the vaccination with drinks and buttered pretzels was also a must. Barbara Riede: “WÖHR supports its staff with numerous opportunities to stay fit and healthy. This vaccination programme is just one facet of many.”

GREEN PARKING - THE ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE DECISION WHERE PARKING IS CONCERNED

People are crowding into the towns. With the increasing urbanisation and concentration of the “town habitat”, large amounts of CO2 are emitted on a daily basis. A medium-sized car with a diesel engine which is inching through inner-city streets for about an hour in the morning, generates around 400 grammes of CO2 emission.
The percentage of electric vehicles compared to vehicles with combustion engines is still low. To increase the number of electric cars, the federal government in Germany would like to see seven to ten million electric cars on the roads by 2030. Other countries, such as Norway, want to ban the sale of new vehicles powered by petrol and diesel from 2025 in favour of electric cars.


Pillars for charging stations

WÖHR has recognised this trend in electromobility and is already offering environmentally-conscious clients solutions for the installation of electric charging stations on site at the parking spaces in a compact and aesthetically pleasing manner. Apart from the hardware, the clients also receive the correspondence advice, as electric charging is presenting us with the most diverse technical options. What type of power connection is required? What is the average charging time? Should there be a charge for the power consumption? Is there even sufficient power from the sockets to supply the building and the car with energy?

Parklift 450 - Extra-wide. Ultra-flexible.

WÖHR Parklift 450 now with a platform width of up to 300 cm.

Cars are not only becoming increasingly more powerful, they are also becoming wider with each model update. WÖHR park lifts reliably accommodate SUVs for many years. To ensure that this remains so in the future in view of the continuing trend of “big & beautiful”, the parking space optimiser from Friolzheim is now offering new, extra-wide alternatives:

The mechanical WÖHR Parklift 450 for individual units is available immediately not only in standard platform widths from 230 to 270 cm, but also in width of 280, 290, or 300 cm. The other specifications for the vehicle height (up to 205 cm) and maximum load (2,600 kg) remain as before, they continue to be sufficient for the heavyweights among cars.

The Parklift 450 is one of the most successful of the WÖHR models for increasing parking space in garages and car parks. The model is available not only in various widths, but also in three comfort gradings (CLASSIC, SMART and PRIME). All versions convince with safety, convenience, and low maintenance costs. We are happy to prepare a quote for you without obligation.
