An interview with Mr. Ulf Schrader, executive director supply chain at Spandex in Achern (Germany) by Marcel te Lindert.

After being acquired by a Dutch private equity fund, Spandex, an international distributor in the sign-making and specialty graphics industries, decided to re-examine its transport and distribution activities. The company asked Groenewout to identify potential cost-saving opportunities.

Spandex supplies the equipment and materials needed to make any kind of signs or speciality graphics products – whether high-quality art reproductions or metres-high building wraps. “We act as a one-stop shop for this sector. Our product portfolio includes anything from wide-format printers, cutting plotters and design software to materials for printing on,” says Ulf Schrader, executive director supply chain at Spandex.
