Are you Brexit ready?

The withdrawal agreement provides for a transition period up to 31st December 2020. Are you ready for January 1st 2021???

Companies in the EU, purchasing goods from the UK, & selling them on the EU market will become importers, while companies distributing products to the UK market will become exporters. New rules will apply no matter what trading agreements are in place between EU & UK.

Our Prolimax Distribution Hub is based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. We can support UK companies currently not having an operations subsidiary in the EU.

Ease of doing business

When you ring the bell at Europe’s front door, guess who opens it? 

As one of Bloomberg’s ‘Best Countries for Business’, The Netherlands is widely recognized as a world-class business destination. 

Its strategic location provides the perfect springboard into the European market, giving access to 95% of Europe’s most lucrative consumer markets within 24 hours of Amsterdam or Rotterdam. Topping that with a supportive corporate tax structure, an educated, skilled and multilingual workforce and a superior logistics and technology infrastructure, it’s easy to see why so many multinational businesses – from start-ups to Fortune 500 leaders—have chosen the Netherlands as their gateway to Europe.

Do come in, the door is open! www.prolimax.com

Appliance Manufacturing Services

Local solutions for global requirements

Today more and more companies offer solutions on a global scale. This does however increase the need for local capabilities even more. Often driven by service and support but also by your customer requirements. Proximity to market is a key issue in today’s business environment. Good to know that Prolimax can work with you on this. Prolimax offers OEM appliance manufacturers support in creating a local supply chain. Setting up with a European partner enables quick access to local markets for supply and support.

Partnering with Prolimax

Prolimax does not offer appliance manufacturing development services, we leave that up to you. We clearly see ourselves as a local alliance partner to foreign appliance manufacturers. We can provide assembly, test and configuration services required to build your customer solutions.

Local assembly, test and configuration

When you partner with Prolimax you have an instant local hub for building your products. We take care of assembly, test and configuration services per your proprietary build instructions, including imaging of software, packaging requirements etc.

Reasons to Outsource

  • Flexibility (No/Low fixed costs)
  • Higher volumes can be achieved & synergy created with other clients of the 3PL in an outsourcing solution. Scalibility means costs go down & service levels go up
  • Specialized warehouses & logistics system (large capital investment) are required
  • Focus on core activities
  • Insufficient expertise on local supply chain market available
  • Back office services offered by the service provider
