New facility will serve as distribution hub for best-selling printing and packaging papers
As part of an overall expansion initiative to provide worldwide distribution as well as meet specific needs of large, global accounts, Neenah Paper have just announced the opening of its new European Distribution Center in Utrecht, Netherlands.
This new facility, managed by the C. van Heezik Group will serve as a local European resource for some of Neenah’s most popular and best-selling brands in Europe. Neenah will immediately stock select Environment® Papers and Neenah® Folding Board, the premium lines from Neenah most often specified by designers for print and packaging products overseas. This announcement comes during Drupa (http://drupa.com), the world's leading trade show for graphic and industrial print.
“The location for Neenah’s new European Distribution Center was strategically selected for three reasons,” said Chris Schneider, Sr. International Marketing and Logistics Manager. “First, the city of Utrecht is centrally located within Netherlands and larger Europe, already a well-known transport hub. Second, this particular location enables Neenah to better service its US-based global accounts who produce a large amount of print and packaging locally in Europe. Finally, Neenah has a strong, local logistics partner that we know and trust.”
The new facility enables the timely, efficient, and cost effective operations of Neenah throughout Europe, as well as room for expansion. Schneider adds, “This is an exciting time for Neenah to solidify our position as a global provider of premium packaging papers for our key customers, with the capability to deliver anywhere within Europe.”
