US-based Federal Equipment Company (FEC) is establishing an office in the Dutch life sciences and health sector to expand in the European pharmaceutical market. The used equipment supplier’s new office is in Almelo, the Netherlands to support its growing client base in Europe’s pharmaceutical supply chain. As the gateway to Europe, the Netherlands offers FEC easy access to pharmaceutical and chemical companies across the continent.
With the opening of its office in the Netherlands, FEC has become more accessible to its current customer base in Europe, while also strengthening its potential to establish and build new relationships with prospective clients.
Room to Grow in the European Pharmaceutical Market
The opening of FEC’s Dutch office is a natural next step for the company as it continues to expand its operations globally. FEC has already formed strong partnerships with a client base of pharmaceutical and chemical companies spanning the European continent. Consequently, building an office in the Netherlands – the gateway to Europe – enables FEC to remain close to its partners at these companies.
This is a critical time for expansion into the European pharmaceutical market as FEC has seen considerable recent growth and activity in this area. Before its expansion, the supplier received requests from companies across Europe looking for pharmaceutical equipment solutions. The Almelo office thus presents an opportunity for FEC to serve this market as it already does in North America.
The Netherlands is the Gateway to Europe
Furthermore, FEC’s new office is located just 90 minutes from the international hub of Amsterdam. In addition, the Netherlands offers world-class infrastructure for global logistics and travel by road, rail, air or sea. By solidifying its European presence with a physical location in the Netherlands, FEC is now able to seamlessly view equipment earmarked for liquidation or visit a customer facility in hours. FEC’s expansion plans also include stocking up and placing more equipment at its warehouses in the Netherlands, where it will offer customers even more of what they have become familiar with through its showroom in Ohio.
FEC Brings Sustainable Solutions to the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain
Finally, FEC joins a growing number of companies innovating sustainable business solutions in the Netherlands. The supplier maintains an extensive inventory of pharmaceutical, chemical, plastics, packaging, and food & beverage processing equipment that companies can purchase for re-use. FEC now provides innovative, sustainable solutions as part of the world-leading Dutch life sciences and health sector.
