Kärcher is a German multinational company that operates worldwide and is known for its high quality and efficient cleaning systems. Its regional distribution centre will cover the Company’s distribution of supply chain network comprising Malaysia, SEA, Australia and New Zealand and will also expand into China, Taiwan and Hong Kong respectively.

The opening of Kärcher Regional Distribution Centre Asia Pacific marks a major milestone for PTP in 2017 as it further strengthens its Free Zone area as the preferred distribution hub in the region and potentially pave way for more established German based companies to invest and set up their own distribution hub in PTP.

Prior to this, PTP has successfully secured various global brands such as, Volkswagen, Coles, Target, Steinhoff, Cotton On and H&M to set up their regional distribution hub in PTP.

Congratulations to PTP!
