Customized production are assembled order-specifically (fitting combinations, automatic door, access control systems, smart-home solutions, shutter elements, window sills, colours, vehicle devices and many more). The enormous specialist retailer provides immediate services and trained consultants support customers´ decisions. Outside of opening hours organized collection boxes assure an arranged order delivery to customers around the clock. Assembly services for special product systems can also be fulfilled by HORN on-site.

Behind this first-class customer service hides a sophisticated logistics which is being digitalized by HORN due to an investment in a new warehouse management system in order to guarantee 100% delivery reliability and flexibility after a short transition phase as of the 15.01.2018. Following a 6-month tender phase HORN awarded the contract to REMIRA (former LOG:IT GmbH) to implement the warehouse management software DILOS along with related hardware.
