Norbert Dentressangle has set up a new subsidiary in Ireland, Norbert Dentressangle Logistics Ireland, to provide warehousing and distribution services across both the south and north.
The company already has operations in Dublin, Belfast and Co Kildare, and employs 120 people. It expects to create up to 20 additional jobs over the next 12 months.
Dentressangle already manages operations in Ireland on behalf of ADM Londis, La Palette Rouge, Mitsubishi and Tesco and has freight forwarding and transport services operations.
Business development director Mark Boulton said: “The current economy is favourable for new entrants, allowing us to be extremely competitive in the market and deliver exceptional value for our customers. While trading conditions remain tough, we see excellent development potential as the economy returns to growth.
