Intellian opens €6.5m European HQ in Rotterdam

Intellian has opened its new European Headquarters and Logistics Centre in Rotterdam, custom-built by the satellite antenna company to streamline its supply chain management and provide faster product delivery to the European market.

The €6.5m facility more than triples Intellian’s previous rented business footprint in the city, covering a plot of 3,773m² to include both office and warehouse space. The layout encompasses a solution centre, customer support centre, and a product demonstration and event area on the roof-top. The offices will house a 35-strong local team.

“We are extremely proud to announce that our new European Headquarters is now open. This significant and worthwhile investment in Europe is crucial to the future success of Intellian and our global partners, meeting increasing product demand and the need to be agile with a new infrastructure and facility,” said Jon Harrison, Vice President and General Manager, Intellian.

“Optimising operational efficiency, the EU HQ and Global Logistics Center will greatly enhance our customers’ experience, improving training, logistics and system testing. Our continued mission is to streamline the overall supply chain, ensuring faster delivery, increased capacity for stock and additional product lines. This new flagship facility will deliver a polished, higher quality of service, not only for Europe, but for all Intellian partners and customers globally.”

“We would particularly like to extend our gratitude to the city for their invaluable assistance. As the biggest maritime address in Europe, we know Rotterdam is the place to be. We first moved to the city 10 years ago as part of a global initiative and our growth was exponential. After making the crucial decision to transition from rented space to investing in the city of Rotterdam several years ago, they welcomed our request to find a site to build our own facility from the beginning. We can now celebrate the establishment of a customised local and regional base which creates the perfect launch pad for future success in Europe and enables us to accommodate increasing demand.”

The Rotterdam development is one of several new Intellian premises opening this year. The company’s new Research and Development Centre in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, was recently completed, while the UK team is taking up new offices near Heathrow in London. A new R&D facility focused on emerging technologies is also set to shortly begin operations in Maryland, USA.
