HealthLink Europe (HealthLink) will open a new warehouse in Waalwijk this year on a plot of almost 5 acres. The new facility will replicate all warehouse activities that are now taking place in the current HealthLink warehouses in ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Rosmalen (the Netherlands).
The relocation of the warehouse activities to Waalwijk is driven by the strong growth that HealthLink is experiencing. Joost van den Heuvel, Managing Director of HealthLink Europe, explains: “We have grown rapidly in recent years. Within our current facilities we cannot expand any further, so we started looking for a new location for both warehouses.” The back-office, order to cash and customer service activities of HealthLink that now take place in ‘s-Hertogenbosch will remain in the current location.
Temperature Controlled Storage
The new temperature controlled warehouse has an area of 17,000 m2 with a temperature range between 15 and 25° C and it also contains a large space with a temperature between 2 and 8 ° C. The building fully complies with the strict GDP and GMP standards. Van den Heuvel: “We have clients in the medical industry, who place high demands on the quality of our services. Thanks to this new warehouse, we can expand the services to our customers and take them to an even higher level.”
Investing in Staff
HealthLink likes to profile itself as an attractive employer. Joost van den Heuvel: “We think investing in the quality of our people is very important. We believe that we are an attractive employer because we can offer the certainty of a contract with good conditions, an extensive induction training and function-related training.”
