The systems integrator for intralogistics solutions – TGW Logistics Group – is aiming for market share of up to 20 per cent within five years and takes a further step with the opening of a new office in the Netherlands.
On the 1 June 2016 TGW Logistics Group, one of the global market leaders in dynamic and automated logistics solutions for warehousing, production, order picking and distribution, celebrated the opening of its new Benelux office in the Frame 21 business centre. The event was attended by both customers and partners. The office is based in the Borchwerf logistics business park in the municipality of Oud Gastel, in the Dutch region of West Brabant and is one of the highlights of a very busy and successful first year in the Benelux market. Since 2014, Hans de Sutter, Head of Sales at TGW Benelux, and his team have been successfully working the region. “We surpassed our initial targets considerably," says Hans De Sutter. "We won two very large strategic projects with TVH and Bol.com, we have also expanded the Benelux team and now set up our new office in Oud Gastel." Accessibility was the decisive factor in choosing a location. From Oud Gastel, TGW can serve both the Belgian and the Dutch markets, and attract employees from both countries.
TGW with their high competency as systems integrator does not only have ambitious targets due to the strong growth in the e-commerce sector. "The evolution in e-commerce provides tremendous opportunities. Also in the area of Lifetime Service we will be very active on the market with entire packages”, Hans de Sutter continues.
Georg Kirchmayr, President of the TGW Logistics Group, is happy about the opening of the new Dutch office: “We are aiming for market share of 15 to 20 per cent in the Benelux within five years. We have big ambitions also in the Benelux and keep following our international growth plan." Therefore, TGW are looking to recruit technicians, software developers and logistics consultants both from Belgium and the Netherlands to join the team.
