Michael Kors to open
state-of-the-art distribution centre in the Netherlands
Luxury fashion brand Michael Kors is to open a new
state-of-the-art distribution centre in Europe.
Situated in Trade Port North in Venlo, the Netherlands,
the 1,000,000-square-foot facility will service all of the company’s European
and Middle Eastern retail, wholesale and e-commerce needs.
Construction on the new European Distribution Centre will
begin next month and the new facility is expected to create around 400 jobs in
the region. The building is being
designed by Dutch firm DENC and will be constructed with a host of environmentally friendly
features, including LED interior lighting and a solar-panel roof.
The centre will be the largest distribution facility in Venlo and has been
designed to accommodate Michael Kors’ projected growth for the next 10 years.
John Idol, Micheal Kors chairman and chief executive, said:
“The construction of a new, innovative distribution centre is an important and
exciting step in the evolution of Michael Kors. The scale and sophistication of
the facility reflect our commitment to substantial growth across all channels
of distribution in both Europe and the Middle East.”
