Stock Polska enhancing its supply chain operations in Lublin Logistics Centre
Less than six months after completion of its investment in technologically advanced production facilities, Stock Polska, a Stock Spirits Group company, is opening a new Lublin-based logistics centre. The new facility will be leased from Goodman, a global leader in ownership, development and management of industrial property.
Based on cutting-edge logistics solutions, the product flow management processes from production to delivery to the customer represent yet another step in the consistent pursuit of the Stock Polska’s growth vision, this time by consolidating and streamlining the operations of storage and distribution of the finished products on the variable and demanding Polish market.
"Increasing the storage capacity of Stock-branded products plays a rather minor role in itself. It is primarily about the integration of production planning and logistics processes, which gives the company the options for flexibility and effective shaping of distribution relationships with partners in the market, while providing the highest level of service tailored to the customer needs." - said Allan Jagger, Group IT and Logistics Director.
Winning such a massive competitive advantage in the current difficult spirits market, offered by the Lublin Logistics Centre facility developed in such a short time in Poland, was made possible thanks to a fruitful collaboration with Goodman.
“One of the greatest strengths of Lublin is its geographical position. In this location we see a huge potential for the logistics industry in our city. We’re also successively striving towards modernization and expansion of communication routes." - said Krzysztof Żuk, Mayor of the City of Lublin.
"Partnering with Stock Polska on this exciting project is a win-win for both parties. It also provides us a strong entry into the commercial real estate market in the eastern part of Poland, and in a region as promising as Lublin is. The opening of this modern warehouse facility in such a short time is another confirmation not only of our ambitions, but also our capability of delivering on them." - emphasises Blazej Ciesielczak, Goodman Regional Director for Central and Eastern Europe.
Ian Croxford, Group Chief Operating Officer and acting Director General of Stock Polska, said: "I am thrilled with the opening of our central warehouse in Lublin, which completes our supply chain. We have invested in all our facilities in Lublin and they are world class. My congratulations go to everyone involved in this project and all our employees who strive to continuously improve everything we do."
