Stryker expands its Venlo operation

An interview with Mr. Niek Dudink, director of the Central Distribution Center Europe at Stryker in Venlo (The Netherlands) by Marcel te Lindert.

Stryker is growing at a considerable pace, not only autonomously but also thanks to its proactive acquisition strategy. In January 2011, for instance, this supplier of medical devices and medical equipment acquired the neurovascular division of Boston Scientific. The move had significant consequences for Stryker’s central distribution center in the Dutch town of Venlo, which was suddenly required to hold 20 percent more inventory and handle a large number of new activities. With Groenewout’s help, Stryker has managed to find room for the new product group without having to extend its DC.
