Hempel grows in North America

Hempel expands its global network with a new Central Distribution Centre in Texas, demonstrating its continuing commitment to be closer to its customers.

Located in Northlake, Texas, the new Central Distribution Centre (CDC) enables Hempel to boost its efficiency and customer service and support its global growth. The new CDC warehouse will be responsible for distributing Hempel’s entire range of coatings to customers and stock points across North America.

Speaking at the official inauguration yesterday Hempel Group President & CEO, Henrik Andersen said:

“We are delighted to be opening our new CDC here today. This new facility further cements our presence in North America. It takes us a step closer to our goal of achieving our 2020 strategy, Journey to Excellence, and supports our global growth. At Hempel, we are continuously investing in ways to streamline our operations so that we can deliver great customer service at a reasonable cost. This new facility allows us to do just that.”

With manufacturing taking place in Dallas and Conroe, Texas, this strategic investment allows orders to be fulfilled and shipped in record time and at reduced cost. The new CDC warehouse covers 202,000 sq. ft/18,766 sq m with 32 dock doors.

More than 30 new jobs will be generated in the first year alone and enabling the new CDC to contribute to the sustainable growth of Northlake and the surrounding local economy.
