Rhenus doubles its storage capacity for Saint Gobain Distribution Bâtiment France

Based in the Rhenus warehouse in Gretz-Armainvilliers since March 2020, DSC, the subsidiary of Saint Gobain Distribution Bâtiment France, leading French distributor of sanitaryware, plumbing and heating supplies, has taken up an additional storage cell since January 2022.

Since setting up operations in the Paris region in the Rhenus warehouse in Gretz-Armainvilliers, DSC (Distribution Sanitaire Chauffage) has recorded very strong growth in its “New and Renewable Energies” (ENR) product family, which is expected to continue in 2022. To guarantee product availability to its sales outlets and business customers in this sector, which is being driven by more energy-efficient housing, DSC decided to increase its product inventories, requiring it to double its storage areas.

“As part of the energy transition, our ENR product family is in high demand, which we must continue to meet despite the current supply difficulties. Our internal and external customers require increasingly rapid product availability, in keeping with their business organisation and specific constraints”, explained Vincent Simille, ENR Logistics Director.

In addition to the required storage areas, Rhenus has also invested in equipment and human resources to keep up with the increase in handling resulting from the double-digit growth in business.

“The continued trust placed in us by our customer during this strong growth phase reflects our ability to support its development and manage complex logistics for thousands of products”, said Mercedes Ortiz Garcia, Business Development Director at Rhenus Logistics France. The products range from accessories to large parts, with order preparation suited to each distribution channel, whether sales outlets, building sites or regional warehouses.
