Fiege to convert former Zalando location
The Brieselang site located near Berlin is set to receive a long-term perspective.
After taking over the logistics centre in April 2019 from Zalando – Europe's leading online platform for fashion and lifestyle – Fiege announced it would convert the branch into a multi-user centre. This goal has now been achieved: the Gerry Weber fashion label will be relocating to Brieselang in October, with the Spanish fashion group Mango joining it in mid-2020. Zalando will also retain a base at the Fiege facility in Brieselang.
Christoph Mangelmans, Managing Director Omnichannel Retail at Fiege:
“We are pleased to have convinced other clients of this location. This positive development will secure the continuity of the location beyond the middle of 2020. It was our declared and shared goal with Zalando to achieve this for our fantastic colleagues in Brieselang.”
Zalando had outgrown the Brieselang logistics centre
Zalando had outgrown the Brieselang logistics centre, which despite its 75,000 square metres of warehouse space in the end could store only a small share of the fashion retailer's product range. Brieselang has a current workforce of 1,000, a large number of whom can now enjoy job security beyond the middle of 2020.
The branch manager Robert Fix, who joined Fiege together with his colleagues from Zalando:
“The new business allows our well attuned and experienced team to continue working together and I very much look forward to the new challenges.”
