Holland, your gateway to Europe at the IRCE in Chicago was a big success.
Seabourne ‘s collaboration with Argents and Maco Customs Service at the IRCE in Chicago was very fruitful. “Holland, your gateway to Europe” as a “one-stop-shop” for US companies was received very well as were the “stroopwafels”!
- Beautiful stand with a lot of questions raised.
- “Holland” Flyer was very clear and well received. • Not one stroopwafle left at our booth.
- Orange ties were very remarkable and well-known after 3 days.

DeRoyal Industries, Inc. and DeRoyal Global Healthcare Solutions, Limited (DGHS) announce their new partnership agreement with the third party logistics company (3PL), Seabourne Group, Ltd., based in Egham, UK. Commencing 1 September 2013, DGHS will ship its orders and inventory of DeRoyal-branded products through Seabourne’s warehouse located in Eindhoven, Netherlands for customers located throughout Europe. With products readily available at the warehouse, this will allow DeRoyal’s European distributor customers to receive orders with much shorter lead times. Lessening inventory, allowing customers to order smaller quantities, and an overall lower cost will equip customers with more freedom, flexibility, and better cash flow. “It is an exciting time for DeRoyal and we are delighted to announce this partnership. It is our strategic goal to strengthen and deepen customer relationships by providing the best service possible, and an improved supply chain is a major element in this,” stated Michael Lekeler, Vice-President of International for DeRoyal. For nearly two years, DeRoyal has operated an Irish company, DeRoyal Global Healthcare Solutions, Limited, in Ireland. This was the initial step to provide better customer service to the European customer base. Since opening this office in March 2012, DeRoyal has expanded the European customer service operations to cover the Middle East and Africa, giving customers the option to conduct business in either US dollars or Euro. “The opening of this 3PL warehouse will further allow DeRoyal to bolster our business in Europe”, stated Bill Pittman, DeRoyal’s President and Chief Operating Officer, “while offering them better and more reliable logistics.”
