The Luxembourg government welcomes Ampacets investment in a new European distribution center in the heart of Europe near to its new EMEA Headquarters & production plant in Dudelange, Luxembourg and its production plant in Messancy, Belgium.
The new distribution Center so called “EuroHub” is being built by S.O.L.E.I.L and will offer some very good advantages:
- A brand new state of the art building designed to fit all of Ampacets requirements and certified “BREEAM” (BREEAM sets the standards for the best practice in sustainable building design). The new building will have 2 weighbridges (entrance & exit), motorized dock doors all equipped with hydraulic levelers and automatic dock seals, ESFR sprinklers, fire detection and prevention systems, facades and roof insulation (cladding double skin)
- The location of the new distribution center is in the south of Luxembourg. Offering direct railway connections to the main European sea ports, a direct access to the major highways (A3 / A13) and is situated next to the well-equipped container terminal
- As part of the major investment into Ampacets distribution center, Ampacet will create approximately 20 jobs in Luxembourg and there will also be additional workers employed during the construction phase.
- 25.000 square meters, with an extensive 25 docks for trucks
Luxembourg lies at the heart of the European road and rail network and thus provides an easy and uncongested access to the European consumer market and industrial centers. The vast majority of the EU’s GDP can be reached within just one day’s travel from Luxembourg.
This new investment will allow Ampacet more reliability and efficiency for its business and will transport thousands of products closer to the point of consumption helping Ampacet shorten its supply chain.
This is a very exciting project for Ampacet; distribution is an essential part of any trading company. It is the physical link between a business and its customer. Consistency, reliability and quality are crucial. The new distribution center will be entirely run by Ampacet which marks a major milestone for Ampacet.
Giuseppe Giusto, Managing Director of Ampacet EMEA, stated: “The opening of the new distribution center is our most recent investment, which will not only keep us at the forefront of the Masterbatch industry, but facilitate future growth in our business”.
Subject to planning, the new facility will be ready in Q4, 2014 / beginning of 2015.
