A few days ago, Odlo began the construction of its new global distribution center in the German town of Brüggen. By the end of 2013, it will take the place of a cluster of five distribution centers in the same area. The total warehouse space will increase from 18,500 to 26,000 square meters, giving it the capacity to stock more than 10 million pieces. Currently, the capacity is at more than 6 million items handled by 80 employees. The new complex will also house the group's sales subsidiary for Germany, with a surface of 1,750 square meters for offices and showrooms.
