Hudson Group has unveiled its new €3.5 million distribution centre in Hal Far, Malta, receiving products from across Asia and Europe for distribution to over 20 countries in Africa.
Financed in part by bond proceeds issued by Hudson Malta plc in 2018, the new centre is located “just a stone’s throw away from the country’s international airport and freeport”, it explained.
The company’s Supply Chain and Data Manager Director, George Amato has explained the investment “will have a positive impact on the company’s business with the capacity to generate more turnover whilst bringing in cost efficiencies, hence serving to future proof” the business.
“The project bolsters the company’s services towards the brands it represents in Africa – bringing fashion and sport closer to the continent”, it said.
The distribution centre spans a total area of 5,000 square metres and will see the Hudson tripling its previous storage capacity, it detailed.
Hudson says the warehouse currently stores products from top global brands, including Nike and Converse.
