Kennickell Opens Fulfillment Warehouse in China
SAVANNAH, GA —July 5, 2011—The Kennickell Group, a 119 year old print and fulfillment company, has opened a fulfillment warehouse in Hong Kong. This facility is the product of a joint venture between Kennickell and one of China’s largest printers, Asia One. Kennickell personnel were in Hong Kong to complete the training of staff in June, with operations beginning on June 27.
This facility will be used to store marketing collateral material for Kennickell’s customers that do business in Asia, resulting in a quicker and less expensive distribution process to that part of the world. The company will also have the option to send files to be digitally printed on demand and distributed.
“We ship marketing collateral material for our clients to Asia on a regular basis and we were looking for a way to cut freight cost and increase speed to market,” explained Al Kennickell, president of The Kennickell Group. “Our joint venture with Asia One will give our clients an advantage over their competition, which is always our primary goal.”
The printer’s existing 83,000-square-foot fulfillment warehouse is located in Savannah, GA, and is near its printing facility on President St. Kennickell provides 24/7 access to inventory levels, distribution and tracking numbers to its clients through a web based fulfillment software system.
