TGW Logistics Group, global market leader in dynamic and automated logistics solutions for warehousing, production, order-picking and distribution, is reinforcing its Benelux team by appointing Bas Ravestein and Walter Etienne. These new recruits will support the strong growth of TGW in the region.
Over the years, Bas Ravestein has accumulated about 20 years of experience in the world of Logistics. He held various positions in sales and consulting, among others at Siemens Dematic AG. His role at TGW Logistics Group Benelux is as Senior Design Engineer.
Walter Etienne began his career at TGW International where he worked as a project and Site Manager for TGW Logistics Group. After his time as Logistics Systems Director at other companies, Walter Etienne returned to TGW Logistics Group as Senior Project Manager.
"The Benelux is experiencing growing demand for automated materials handling solutions. This is being intensified by the continuing growth of the e-commerce sector. The market is growing and so are the increasing demands for automated logistics solutions in the Benelux region. We are happy to experience a growing amount of inquiries and orders since the opening of our Benelux office a year ago," says Hans De Sutter, Head of Sales Benelux. "I am looking forward to further consolidating the position of TGW Logistics Group in this fiercely competitive market with both these men."
On the international front, TGW Logistics Group has had a successful year too. The Group generated turnover of 475 million euro in the 2014/2015 fiscal year, which represents growth of 28.14% in one year. In addition, the number of employees rose to 2,500. The Group is currently looking for about 300 new colleagues.
