WHEATON Opens European Warehouse

Faster delivery now available to European customers

April 12, 2011, Millville, NJ – Marking a dramatic shift from the way it has done business in the past, Wheaton, a leading provider of quality products and services for the laboratory research, diagnostic packaging, and specialty pharmaceutical industries, has begun shipping products to European customers from a new supply chain service provider located in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. This exciting new logistics strategy is a significant investment for Wheaton and is expected to greatly improve the delivery and pricing of Wheaton products throughout Europe.

Early in 2010 Wheaton began to explore the possibility of stocking products in Europe in a concerted effort to better service their European customers by improving lead times and helping customers to save on the high costs associated with shipping product from the USA. After extensive research, Wheaton chose to partner with a world-class operation from a leading global supply chain services provider for the storage and shipment of products out of their Netherlands logistics center.

Already well known for its customer-centric approach, Wheaton believes that this collaboration with its global partner will further provide the opportunity to strengthen relationships with its European customer base, cultivate new business relationships, and to enhance the Wheaton brand and customer service experience abroad.

The Wheaton products portfolio is currently housed at the 160,000 square foot (14,685 m3) facility with room for future expansion.“The Wheaton motto has always been to continue ‘Being Incredibly Easy to Do Business With’ – we even have a large banner in our offices that reads exactly that,” says Stephen Drozdow, President / CEO of Wheaton. “With our newly established manufacturing base in the UK – and now added logistics support in the Netherlands – we are committed to living up to that motto. Our global business has always been in place to support the work of scientists in Europe, and we will continue working to achieve an even better customer experience now and into the future,” he added.
