Upon realising their block storage could no longer cope with production demands, Mineralbrunnen Rhönsprudel, primarily a mineral water company, looked to SSI Schaefer for a solution that could address their needs.

The expansion means that the company has 34,000 sq m of production and warehousing in Johor, Malaysia.
