DecoWraps Europe starts construction at Green Park Aalsmeer
DecoWraps is a leading international manufacturer and distributor of innovative packaging materials for cut flowers and potted plants. Decowraps is moving its Aalsmeer office to Green Park Aalsmeer. The distribution centre for packaging manufacturer DecoWraps Europe will be built on an 8,000 m2 lot and will feature a 1,500 m2 office and a 3,200 m2 warehouse. The facility will be built sustainably and will be BREEAM Excellent certified, with a particular focus on reduced energy consumption, the environment and a healthy indoor climate.

Decowraps engaged Groenewout to conduct a second opinion on an in-house performed logistics study in order to determine the capacity requirements and optimal logistics concept. For the new distribution centre, Groenewout defined the Program of Requirements with input of the various stakeholders (based on a turn-key contract with a contractor), selected and awarded the building contractor, assisted in the purchase of the land and requested for changes in the zoning plan.
Following a previous project deciding on warehouse size & logistics concept for their newly built DC, Decowraps initiated a new project to develop a global standard for their logistics processes. Furthermore, Decowraps wanted to investigate the possible gains from implementing a WMS and how product identification & master data management could be improved. Groenewout developed the to-be situation, creating a global standard for all 3 Decowraps locations.
