Cable manufacturer HELUKABEL has recently brought its expanded global logistics center in Hemmingen, Germany, online. The company says the $50 million project more than doubled its warehousing capacity, providing a foundation for further growth in the future.
‘This new building is a milestone in the history of our company,’ says Helmut Luksch, managing director of HELUKABEL GmbH. ‘What this means for our U.S. and Canadian customers is that our Chicago- and Toronto-based warehouses are constantly supported by our just-in-time warehouse, which stores our 33,000-plus line items, to greatly enhance their stock availability. With the logistics network that we have in place, items can arrive from Germany in a time frame comparable to shipments from Chicago or Toronto.’
