One of Australia's major online retailers is to launch in Europe, with the opening of dedicated headquarters in France, including an 8,000 sqm purpose built distribution centre.
Ranked at number 4 in the 2011 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, SurfStitch sells up to 10,000 items per day.
"We've tried and tested this model in Australia, and have also been serving customers globally from the very beginning. With SurfStitch now also located in Europe, customers can expect an even stronger online retail experience - from a seamlessly designed and stunningly visual website, to SurfStitch's industry leading shopping and delivery experience," said SurfStitch's managing director Justin Cameron.
In a statement, the company said: "Launched with 150 of the top surf, mountain and fashion brands, SurfStitch Europe will offer the same leading customer service proposition that won the company Online Retailer of the Year for 2012 in Australia. Thousands of new styles and hundreds of new brands will constantly be added to the site as the business continues towards its target of 500 brands in 2013."
