Post Time:Nov 12,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:58

On Aug. 24, Los Angeles-based, C.R. Laurence Co., opened a 36,000-square-foot facility in Ilsfeld, Germany, north of Stuttgart, according to a Sept. 10 release. Formerly located in Bad Wimpfen, the new location brings the products and services closer to Stuttgart.

“This is an important segment of our European strategy," said Donald E. Friese, chairman and CEO, in the release. "We want to offer our European customers the same wide range of products we currently provide North America and Australia. We also plan to present our ‘rapid customization’ process to the European market, providing customers with products built to their specifications, with lead times similar to ‘off-the-shelf’ products. As we move forward, we plan to focus a great deal on Europe as an opportunity for growth.”

The new facility will enable CRL to stock a much larger inventory of products for European customers, and will also feature state-of-the-art shipping equipment and computer systems for quick delivery. Customers will be able to pick up orders on site. A showroom will display some of CRL's newest products, including full-size working models of CRL's architectural hardware products, frameless shower door hardware, glass railing systems, all-glass storefront systems, architectural metals, and glazing supplies and tools.

After the acquisition of Ebor Group Holdings Ltd. in Manchester, England, CRL began construction on a 71,000-square-foot facility in Rochdale. With these expansions the company will have more than 137,000 square feet of floor space dedicated to distribution of its extensive line of products, according to the release.
