New European Distribution Centre for Hollister
An interview with Mr Hugh Berry, European Logistics Manager, Hollister by Tjaart Theron.
Early in 2007, Hollister – an independently-owned global company that develops, manufactures and markets healthcare products and services in more than 90 countries – took a decision to develop a new European Distribution Centre in the southern part of the Netherlands. This meant that Hollister needed local assistance from a consulting and engineering company to manage the creation of a distribution centre in Etten-Leur, which is situated in the vicinity of Breda.
