Redditch, UK: Coating products manufacturer FreiLacke UK has chosen Oakland International to provide storage and distribution.

Oakland, a multi-temperature logistics service provider will act as FreiLacke’s UK base.  Oakland, has handled FreiLacke products since March 2006, and under the new contract will distribute 30 tonnes a year of FreiLacke products from its Redditch depot.

Lee Hathaway, technical sales representative, FreiLacke UK says “FreiLacke has been working with Oakland International for over five-years, initially contracted to be our storage and logistics partner.

“Moving to Oakland International’s midlands depot for our permanent base made perfect sense as it allows for a closer working relationship, streamlining of internal business information and it also makes logistical sense.”

Oakland International will provide warehousing and distribution of all FreiLacke products, with FreiLacke having its personnel on site.  FreiLacke have also budgeted to increase annual growth by 10%.  FreiLacke products include powder coatings, liquid paints, paint additives and thinners.

Dean Attwell, managing director, Oakland International says “Basing their UK operations from Oakland International’s Midlands depot will support the organic growth and market share of their products as they continue to benefit from our exacting service levels, experience and business flexibility.
