TD Synnex, the leading distribution company specialized in IT products and services, is expanding in collaboration with WDP. The warehouse in Aalst was outdated and too small to accommodate their necessary growth. Therefore, the landlord, WDP, is building a new warehouse of 3,200 square meters on the site, and the existing buildings will be renovated and made more sustainable in a second phase.
Old and new come together
What makes this project exceptional? "The existing warehouse will be connected to the new section through a corridor," explains Koen Baele, the Project Manager at WDP who is coordinating these works. "This comes with additional challenges because there will also be an automated transport aisle between the buildings."
A pleasant working environment
WDP not only focuses on new construction but also renovates the outdated building. "It goes beyond energy-saving measures such as LED lighting, charging infrastructure, heating, and ventilation," adds Brecht Van Hulle, the Logistics Director of TD Synnex. "Thanks to the new relaxation areas, shower cabins, and rooftop terrace, it will also become a more pleasant place for our customers and employees."
