Vanderlande officially launched its new manufacturing and distribution centre in Acworth
07 July 2017
Vanderlande officially launched its new manufacturing and distribution centre in Acworth, GA, on 28 June 2017. The global market leader for value-added logistic process automation at airports and in the parcel market – as well as being a leading supplier for warehouses – has invested in this centre with a view to reducing lead times and costs for Vanderlande’s North American customer base. Vanderlande’s impressive new facility is an amalgamation of the company’s manufacturing plants previously located in Calhoun, GA, and the existing North American Distribution Centre which is situated adjacent to the Acworth site. These two locations separately employed around 25 people, but the new manufacturing and distribution centre will more than triple that number to between 80 and 100 employees when operating at full capacity. The main North American customers to be serviced by Vanderlande’s manufacturing and distribution centre are UPS, FedEx, Amazon and some of North America’s largest airports. These include Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Vancouver (YVR), and Atlanta (ATL). The Acworth site will also house the company’s North American spare parts business and act as a distribution point for the continent’s and other global shipments.
