New warehouse for Alewijnse

Electrical and automation systems integrator, Alewijnse, has opened a new warehouse at Damen Yachting’s Vlissingen yard.

The upgraded facility is twice the size of its predecessor and will enable Alewijnse to increase its efficiency in providing the electrical integration services that it delivers to Damen Yachting.

The decision to enlarge the warehouse was driven by the need for additional space.

“Our previous location became too small for our growing operations,” said Tom Milder, chief operating officer at Alewijnse. “The new warehouse is a straightforward response to the need for more space, resulting in increased professionalism, enhanced safety and better logistical accessibility.”

The new facility is designed to deliver electrical services to up to five superyacht projects simultaneously, with around 70 Alewijnse technicians on-site.

Maximum efficiency

With constant access to installation materials, including cables, facilitated by the support of three dedicated full-time warehouse professionals, the workflow is optimised for maximum efficiency.

Above the warehouse floor, there is a designated space with around 25 workstations for the exclusive use of commissioners, engineers, and supervisors.

Alewijnse currently has ten warehouses at various worldwide locations including those at Alewijnse sites and third-party shipyards including in the Netherlands, France, Romania and Vietnam.

“The warehouses are structured to provide rapid and flexible service to our customers,” said Freek Bosman, team lead facility and logistics Netherlands. “We maintain close communication and utilise each other’s inventory when necessary.

“This approach enables us to offer the best service to all our clients in the yacht, marine, and dredging and offshore sectors.”
