OIA Global Opens Its 20th European Office in Barcelona, Spain
OIA Global, a logistics, packaging, and materials sourcing provider, announced a European expansion with the launch of its new office in Barcelona, Spain.
OIA’s decision to open the new office was driven by demand from several existing multi-national customers.
OIA has traditionally held a strong base in the northern, western and central areas of Europe. The opening of its new office in Barcelona represents the latest step in the company’s growth strategy, allowing them to further build their infrastructure throughout Europe.
“When our clients target a geographic market for expansion, we’re always there to support them,” said David Ower, OIA’s managing director of Europe. “Each market is unique, and our team of logistics professionals in Barcelona are there to ensure that our customers have the same seamless experience in Spain as they enjoy in all other markets.”
The Spanish economy is experiencing significant recovery since the recession of 2008 and 2009, and is in the process of implementing innovative regulatory reform, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). “The Spanish economy has grown for ten straight quarters, making it a very desirable market to invest in,” noted Mirela Duras, OIA’s corporate support manager of Europe.
OIA Global, founded in 1988, is a $1 billion supply-chain management leader, delivering clients a combination of global logistics, materials sourcing, and packaging solutions. The company employs over 1000 professionals in its 60 offices in 26 countries.
