Biomet, part of the Biomet Global Supply Chain Center, will relocate its European Distribution Centre from Dordrecht to Hazeldonk (Breda). Biomet choose Hazeldonk because of the central location in relation to its European headquarter and the logistic distribution centres of the European conveyors. The early availability of the warehouse as well as the accessibility along the A16 played an important role in the search.

Biomet designs, manufactures and markets orthopedical products and is headquartered in Warsaw, Indiana (US). The Head Office for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) is located in Dordrecht. Danny de Roeck, Vice President European Operations & GSCC: “We are very satisfied with our new location, where we have access to the necessary facilities to expand our logistic activities to support our growth in the EMEA market”.
The Mayor Peter van der Velden and Alderman of Economics Affairs, Cees Meeuwis of the City of Breda are very pleased to welcome Biomet in Breda. “As soon as we were informed that Biomet wanted to locate in Breda, we did all we could to facilitate the actual business accommodation as soon as possible. To welcome a US medical concern of this size in these economic times, is in terms of employment a unique opportunity which we could realize by the dynamic approach of NV BrIM”.
