Dentressangle will be responsible for the warehousing and picking of orders and delivery into the retailer’s regional distribution network, where orders are cross-docked and consolidated with other products for final delivery to store. When completed, the operation will be serving more than 350 stores.
US group Valspar has sales of more than $4bn. Global managing director Mike Watson said: “We are delighted to be working with Norbert Dentressangle as we enter the UK market.
