Europa buys Menzies assets

[ February 4, 2019   //   ]

Europa Worldwide Group has acquired some of the trade and assets of fulfilment and warehouse management service, Menzies Response for an undisclosed sum.
It has purchased Menzies’ warehouse in Rushden Northamptonshire and its contact centre in Ashford, Kent from Menzies Distribution, to strengthen its Europa Warehouse division, which already has facilities in Dartford, Birmingham and Northampton.
Europa Warehouse will take over the existing customer base and 90 employees, with business continuing as normal.
The contact centre in Ashford will be rebranded as Europa Contact Centre.
Europa Warehouse director, Maria Torrent-March (main picture), said: “We are confident that now is the right time to expand and we know we have the right skills and ability to grow the Menzies Response business.”
In May 2018 Europa bought Belgium-based specialist part and full load operator, Continental Cargo Carriers.
