Aker BioMarine is opening a new distribution hub in Chennai, India in response to growing demand for its QRILL products.
The company first entered the Indian market in 2018 when Aker BioMarine India was established in Mumbai. The country remains a key market for Aker BioMarine and the new warehouse will provide a platform to expand the reach of QRILL Aqua products even further, beyond the borders of India.
“India is one of the world’s largest shrimp markets, which makes it of strategic importance for Aker BioMarine,” said Atul Barmann, general manager, Aker BioMarine India.
“We want to be able to adequately supply our customers with our QRILL products on-demand, which is best done through local presence. That’s why we have chosen Chennai for the location of our new warehouse, where we will continually stock QRILL products,” he added.
Aker BioMarine’s local warehouse presence in Chennai will enable better overall service and a solid supply of buffer stock for the company’s key accounts, as well as open the door to small and medium sized accounts looking to purchase QRILL directly.
“Our customers will benefit from a steady supply of QRILL products, from vessel to warehouse, that’s delivery-ready and already customs cleared,” added Mr Barmann.
