Barrie, Ontario (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
An immediate expansion of its facilities and personnel is underway to accommodate record growth and the surging demand and success for Napoleon products.
Wolf Steel Group’s European operations will be moving into a larger 85,000 square foot (8,500 square meter) distribution centre located in Geldermalsen, Netherlands and at the same time the company will also be moving its Austrian division to a larger facility at Weistrach, Austria.
In order to enhance and streamline delivery to its customers, Wolf Steel Austria and Wolf Steel Holland will be combined into Wolf Steel Europe BV.
“We are very pleased by the success of our Napoleon brand in the European markets we serve,” stated Wolfgang Schroeter, the CEO of the Wolf Steel Group. “The business expansion plans we are announcing today are in response to the growth and demand from these markets, as well as adding capacity to serve our customers better and launch new products in the coming months for which we believe we are uniquely positioned.”
“This investment signifies Napoleon’s on-going commitment to our European market,” continued Mr. Schroeter.
Effective January 2014, the Company will be in a position to service and support its European customers from this new distribution centre.
