Essentra opens new eastern Europe hub

Essentra Components has opened a new European distribution hub in Łódź, Poland to enhance service and lay the foundations for future growth.

The new location is part of an ongoing investment by Essentra Components to enhance its European distribution footprint by merging its legacy Łódź warehouse and Bratislava warehouse into a purpose-built hub.

With the new hub, products previously held across multiple locations will now be centralised, enabling Essentra Components to distribute complete orders from a single source, improving service through improved lead times and reducing carbon footprint.

The new facility sits on a 9,300sqm footprint, built to Essentra’s design, including a new office complex and a warehouse facility servicing 20,000 product lines. It serves five countries as part of a soft launch, with further countries being added in due course. It is estimated that the 26-strong logistics team will process over 1,000 shipments per day.

Rob Baker, global supply chain director at Essentra Components, said the new site will further strengthen customer relationships and give scope for future growth: “Moving our facility into a new, purpose-built location in Łódź means that we can capitalise on the great experience and ethos of our current Łódź team, whilst maintaining access to key freight links that Łódź provides, including the rail network.

“In addition, with a larger office footprint, our customer teams will have new, modern facilities to enhance our hassle-free service allowing room to grow as we continue to expand market presence.”
