- European fulfillment Lawrence to Breda
Lawrence currently manufactures its equipment in California and ships out to customers worldwide. Most clients are located in the UK, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Turkey and the Netherlands. The company has decided to set-up a new office in Breda, including a warehouse facility to fulfill replacement orders on machinery sold in Europe.
Currently each spare part is shipped from the USA to clients in Europe. This obviously causes substantial delays; before the equipment is repaired and operational again sometimes weeks have passed. With a presence in Europe, Lawrence will be able to better service its clients and to further develop the European market. The past year the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) and the Brabant Development Agency (BOM Foreign Investments), in close cooperation with the City of Breda, has assisted Lawrence in their search for a new location in Europe. The main reason for landing in Breda was its central location and the accessibility to major European markets.
