With more than 100 sales and warehouse locations positioned across four continents, the company continues to add space to serve existing customers, new customers, and its new e-commerce offering.
“We experienced a banner growth year in 2018, and we are already off to a strong start in 2019. Our new investments in warehouse space allow us to keep ahead of demand and ensure our customers continue to enjoy the logistical and economic benefits of our inventory management programs,” Berlin Packaging Chief Operating Officer Rick Rover said.
In 2018, Berlin Packaging added almost 300 jobs to its workforce in communities around the world.
Work is currently underway to further expand Berlin’s North American space in New York, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, and Des Moines, IA. This will add and upgrade more than 500,000 square feet of space to help accommodate growth and customer needs for turnkey inventory-management solutions.
“Having more warehouse space for our customers is beneficial because it allows them to get out of the inventory business,” Rover said. “But the real magic is when you combine it with our demonstrated track-record of on-time delivery – now at 177 consecutive months of 99+% on-time accuracy when shipped from our warehouses.”
This news comes on the heels of Berlin Packaging’s recent global initiatives, including adding multiple locations in England as part of its H. Erben acquisition, opening a new office in Edinburgh, Scotland, and adding larger warehouses, quality labs and showrooms in Nice, France, and Cape Town, South Africa.
Plans are also underway to almost double its European headquarters in Milan, Italy, as well as add to the facility in Barcelona, Spain.
