Corning Expands EMEA Distribution Center in Amsterdam
Life sciences division celebrates grand opening in Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp
New York-based materials science company Corning Incorporated expanded its European Life Sciences distribution center at Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp. The company completed the highest point of its new building last Summer and recently celebrated the grand opening of its six-acre expansion.
Osdorp strengthened by international companies
Corning established operations at Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp in 2009. The company distributes medical products to EMEA customers from its Netherlands location. Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp is a business park of the future developed by SADC and Amsterdam City Council. Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp is ten minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. It is home to companies like McDonald’s, Sanquin Blood Supply and Taylor Guitars.
“It’s good to see that Business Park Amsterdam Osdorp is strengthened as a location for this kind of international activity,” said Achmed Baâdoud, Chairman of Nieuw-West, Amsterdam’s largest district council. “The added value of the position of this location near Schiphol Airport and Amsterdam are starting to pay off.”
