New DC for Hitachi Data Systems
An interview with mr. Paul Dalderop, director European logistics of Hitachi Data Systems in Waardenburg (The Netherlands) by Marcel te Lindert.
In 2011, having continued to grow year on year despite the financial crisis, Hitachi Data Systems decided to build a new European distribution centre in Zaltbommel, The Netherlands. Groenewout designed the layout for the DC and developed a new process for supplying components to the assembly area. As a result, Hitachi Data Systems moves in April into a new DC which is not only larger and more sustainable, but also more efficient than its existing one.
