JYSK to invest €200 million in new distribution centre in Hungary
Furniture retailer JYSK is to begin building a new distribution centre in Hungary this month.
Once up and running, the facility in Ecser will employ around 300 people as the company looks to strengthen its logistics set-up in Europe.
Allan Kjærgaard, executive vice president of logistics at JYSK, said: “Although the coronavirus situation has a big impact on JYSK, it is still important for us to invest in the future. Once everyday life returns, people will still need beds, duvets and pillows as well as other necessities for their home. In order to provide that, we need a strong logistics setup, which our new distribution centre in Ecser in Hungary will help secure.”
Spanning 143,000 square metres, the facility will feature two highbays, docks for loading and unloading trucks and office space for administration. The highbays will provide 205,000 pallet locations for products.
The centre is expected to be ready to start operating in mid-2022 when it will begin serving JYSK customers and stores in Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia.
