Culina Group and SHS Group have launched a supply chain option for food and drink manufacturers in Ireland.
Operating under the Culina SHS Ireland name, the company is set to open a 160,000 sq ft ambient and chilled warehouse on Aerodrome Business Park, south of Dublin, which is designed to provide manufacturers in Britain with a logistics offering covering the whole of Ireland.
Thomas van Mourik, chief executive of the Culina Group, said: “Manufacturers have long seen the potential in Ireland, but many have lacked the operational platform to take full advantage of the available opportunities.
“With the new operation we can effectively integrate Ireland into a one-stop supply chain solution, with all the strategic, tactical, commercial and operational benefits that such a move brings.”
Culina SHS will employ the same warehouse management system used throughout Culina’s UK operations, which ensures automatic stock replenishment and complete visibility of order status throughout the supply chain.
