Transmec Belgium has almost tripled its storage capacity with the opening of a new warehouse near Liege.
The new 4,200 sq m facility enables the Herstal-based division to keep pace with its rapid growth, which has seen turnover rise from 3.2 to 16.5 million euros between 2012 and 2018.
“It’s a really positive step and will make a big difference to the way we operate, benefiting our customers and our employees,” said branch manager, Yannick Lonneux.
“It will also provide a platform for further growth with turnover expected to exceed 18 million euros this year.”
Going forward the branch will operate two bases at Herstal, with its long-established 2,200 sq m warehouse continuing to be used for exports while the new warehouse will be a hub for imported goods.
The facilities are just 2km from each other, well-located near the main road network which offers fast routes throughout the Benelux countries and access to Transmec’s hubs throughout Europe.
