Arcelik- Arctic sets up regional spare parts warehouse in Romania

Romanian home appliances producer Arctic, part of the Arçelik group, announced the opening of a regional spare parts hub in Arges County that will supply 23 countries as part of the development strategy of the Turkish group in Romania and the region. Thus, Romania will play a key role as a logistics centre for the entire European continent.

Located in Căteasca, Argeș County, near the Pitești-Bucharest highway, the new warehouse has an area of 10,000 square meters and a storage capacity of 11,500 cubic meters. It became fully operational at the end of March and includes offices and functional areas for new employees.

In the first phase, the hub will serve 15 countries in the European Union and 8 outside the Union. The network will expand to include other European countries.

“Romania has a strategic role at the intersection of three major markets, which makes it ideal both as a production hub and an important centre for coordinating logistics activities. At the same time, the opening of this warehouse is in line with our sustainability strategy, which focuses on reliable products with a high degree of repairability and a reduction in carbon footprint,” said Murat Büyükerk, Arctic Chief Executive Officer.

The centre will provide spare parts for all products sold by Arctic and Arçelik, mainly for the categories of refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers and air conditioners. The parts come from the two Arctic factories in Romania, Găești and Ulmi, and the five Arçelik factories in Turkey and China.
