American luxury accessories and ready-to-wear clothing company Michael Kors has announced that it will soon break ground on a state-of-the-art distribution centre in Trade Port North in Venlo, Netherlands. The new European distribution centre (EDC) will service all of the luxury fashion brand’s European and Middle Eastern retail, wholesale and, eventually, e-commerce needs, the company said in a statement.

Construction on the 1,000,000-square-foot distribution centre, designed by prominent Dutch firm DENC, is anticipated to begin next month. The centre is the largest such facility in Venlo, planned to accommodate Michael Kors’ projected growth for the next 10 years.

Michael Kors’ EDC will be a green building with a host of environmentally friendly features, including LED interior lighting and a solar-panel roof. The new facility is expected to create approximately 400 jobs in the region.

“The construction of a new, innovative distribution centre is an important and exciting step in the evolution of Michael Kors,” said John D Idol, chairman and CEO of the company. “The scale and sophistication of the facility reflect our commitment to substantial growth across all channels of distribution in both Europe and the Middle East.”

Michael Kors stores are operated, either directly or through licensing partners, in some of the most prestigious cities in the world, including New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, London, Milan, Paris, Munich, Istanbul, Dubai, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. (SH)
