Tennis-Point moves to new premises: With its own new office building growth is set to expand still further
Company outgrows its confines; Administration and office team move first, with Logistics to follow in the next months
„The amazing success of recent years with ever more customers and the corresponding rise in deliveries, both domestically and internationally, has allowed us to take this exciting step. In the previous building continued growth was no longer a possibility,” says Maik Langenberg, Managing Director, Operations and Technology at Tennis-Point. „We've gone for the option of our own building, with built in warehouse facilities. What we now have is not only an attractive base from which to operate, but one with the space to also facilitate a significant level of growth going forward.“
As recently as early October, the Management team, Accounting, Service and Support made the move to the new building.A soon as these areas have settled themselves in to the new surroundings and all of the necessary installations in the high-bay storage have been carried out, then the complete Logistics team, including its state of the art packaging lines and delivery operationwill follow..The new rooms offer the employees more than just an improved office space. A dining area and rooms for relaxation ensure that the team gets to enjoy its surroundings.
„To us, tennis is a team sport. Our success is based in no small part on the efforts and commitment of our employees, and we want to reward this with a great working environment,” explains Marketing Director, Philipp Tippkemper. „The new offices will usher in a further growth phase that we're completely geared up for, and at the same time allow the team here to experience the benefits of their hard work. We have a very low level of staff turnover that suggests our employees recognize that they're appreciated.“
More space, better infrestructure, a promising future.
The new office building is situated just a few kilometers from the old headquarters. Yet with 1,500m2 of space it offers over four times as much room as before. In addition to the significantly larger office space, the Logistics team now has the use of high-bay storage that tinstalled in the new building offers five times as much storage space. The speed of turnaround means that the products don't remain long in the warehouse, but the increased storage capacity allows Tennis-Point to considerably broaden the width of its product selection.
In addition, the demand for running gear, especially following the opening of the company's second online shop - Jogging-Point.de – continues to grow significantly. This means that the company can build on the success of Tennis-Point.de to offer the running-world an ever more attractive product portfolio that matches the sport's growing profile and sophistication.
