sbh confirms international role with success at Munich’s Transport Logistic show
Industrial and warehousing property specialist sbh confirmed its international credentials by exhibiting at Transport Logistic Munich in May, the world’s largest trade fair for Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Held bi-annually, the show attracted 51,000 visitors from 134 countries, giving sbh exposure to leading logistics executives from mainland Europe and the developing CIS states.
With the experience and reputation of more than 20 years working for numerous leading retail, distribution and industrial clients such as B & Q, Damart, Homebase, Brake Bros, Fozzy, General Motors, GeoPost, Kellogg’s and Virgin Trains,sbh’s activity across Europe has increased significantly over the past five years. Current assignments include a 25,700m² distribution centre for TK Maxx in Bergheim, Germany, just completed and a similar project now underway in Wroclaw, Poland. The company currently has a number of other projects in hand, from Ukraine in the east across to Benelux in the west.
sbh’s Andy Melvin commented; “Over the past few years we could see that more of our UK clients were either already established in mainland Europe or were planning to expand, so it made sense to offer them the same services that we had provided for so long in the UK. The reaction from a number was very positive – including T K Maxx, for whom we had project-managed two distribution centres in England.”
“The show was a logical step in communicating our growth strategy and we were exceedingly pleased with both the number and quality of the enquiries we received.”
