Avure Opens HPP Parts Distribution Centre in Netherlands10 February 2014
NETHERLANDS - Avure Technologies HPP Equipment and Services Division has opened a new Parts Distribution Centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The new site enables 24-hour delivery of stocked spare parts to customers throughout the European Union and Asia.
Managed by a professional global logistics firm near Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, the distribution centre replaces an existing facility in Västerås, Sweden.
With its accelerated shipping, the distribution center relocation is the next step in Avure’s phased deployment of a world-class service organisation to further support its leadership role in high pressure processing (HPP).
As applications for the non-thermal, all-natural pasteurisation process continue to proliferate, Avure’s service program has been expanding to accommodate a steadily growing customer base of food processors around the globe.
“Heading into a new phase of growth, Avure has realigned to better suit the specialized needs of our HPP customers,” comments Jeff Williams, who was named Chief Executive Officer of the HPP Equipment and Services Division in December 2013.
“With our division now a stand-alone business unit, the entire organization is food-focused.”
The current initiative also encompasses the transfer of all food operations--including cross-trained Customer Support staff, spare part quotation, order entry, and administration for Europe and Asia--from Västerås to divisional headquarters in Middletown, Ohio, USA, where HPP manufacturing is now underway.
