NTN-SNR_Cran-GevrierA new logistics centre has been unveiled by NTN-SNR as the bearing manufacturer looks to expand its operations worldwide.

The new facility providing 12,000m2 of dedicated storage space for automotive aftermarket parts and operations will be joined to another warehouse to double the space available.

This decision will benefit NTN’s strategy to grow its business worldwide from its new European distribution centre at Cran-Gevrier, near Annecy in France. The plan is for the facility to serve a wide area including, the Middle East, South America and Russia.

The €10 million investment has provided NTN-SNR with the chance to support, store, package up orders and ship from one complex, and optimise the flow of its 7000 products to achieve its 40 tonnes of parts a day target.

The new logistics centre in Annecy also incorporates a number of environmentally friendly designs including, receiving ISO14001 certification, water treatment facility and a guaranteed temperature inside the unit to between 12oC to 14oC through reinforced insulation.

Eric Malavasi, Director of Automotive Aftermarket and Logistics at NTN-SNR, said: “We have worked on developing this area of business both in Western Europe, which is our main market, and for export, which now represents a significant share of our sales. The continuation of this development over the coming years will require a change in logistics methods.”
