Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 26 November 2008 - CEVA Logistics, a leading global supply chain management companies, recently unveiled its facility expansion plan to support its growing operations, and celebrated its first year anniversary for its integrated CEVA brand in Malaysia. The new 350,000 square feet distribution centre will officially open in early 2009, and will support CEVA's growth plans as it increases its presence in the region.
The new facility launch is part of CEVA Malaysia's strategy to double its business by 2010. Malaysia's growth focus has established the company as a leader in Technology, Tires, Industrial, and Retail/ Consumer segments, and positions CEVA as a leading player in freight management and contract logistics services.
"In conjunction with our one year anniversary, we are proud to announce the completion of our new distribution centre in Bukit Jelutong, located near Shah Alam, as part of our expansion strategy. We expect to relocate to the new premise by early 2009. This investment ensures CEVA is able to meet its customers' growing needs within the various key sectors" said Michael Yip, Managing Director of CEVA Malaysia.
CEVA's competence in operations excellence is supported by its Zero Defect Start-up and LEAN warehousing programs, which ensures smooth and continuous improvement to its customers' businesses. These programs are the key cornerstones which underpin the company's performance and drive its customer's satisfaction and efficiency.
"We have been able to achieve a great deal over the past year in the region." commented Vittorio Favati, President for CEVA Asia Pacific. "Our commitment to excellence stems from a belief that customers are not satisfied with the current performance of 3PLs managing their supply chains. We are confident of enacting change and creating global best practices that our industry has not achieved. Our Malaysian business is a great example of what CEVA is capable of." added Favati.
Present in Malaysia, CEVA's Chief Executive Officer John Pattullo commented, "Although companies are now facing increasingly tough market conditions, CEVA is in a solid position to maintain momentum - we have clear strategy, good focus on costs & cash, and innovative solutions which are driving above market revenue growth."
