Menlo To Provide European Distribution For NYX, A Fast-growing Cosmetics Company

SAN FRANCISCO and AMSTERDAM, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To better service its rapidly expanding markets throughout Western Europe, U.S.-based cosmetics company NYX has appointed Menlo Worldwide Logistics (Menlo) to operate a comprehensive distribution network based on its multi-user hub in Eersel, Netherlands. Although Germany is currently NYX's largest market, Eersel was chosen for its high level of connectivity from an international and pan-European perspective, in line with the company's expansionary plans.

NYX, whose brand is named after the Greek goddess of the night, is headquartered in Los Angeles and has been the fastest-growing cosmetics company in the United States. It offers the best quality of product with ultra-modern and stylish packaging. Its cosmetics have highly pigmented colors designed to appeal to the hip and sophisticated end of the market.

Menlo, the global logistics subsidiary of Con-way Inc. (NYSE: CNW), provides a full range of supply chain services to NYX, from transport management of inbound ocean and airfreight, through inventory control, to pick-and-pack order fulfillment and distribution into both NYX's retail and e-commerce outlets.

NYX's CFO, Arash Khazei, explained some of his company's thinking in deciding to entrust the distribution operation to Menlo. "Because of our scheduled expansion in the European market, we require a truly flexible partner that can be light on its feet when challenged to service new markets and to re-engineer a supply chain with minimum delay. In Menlo we recognized a logistics specialist that we believe has both a cultural fit with NYX when it comes to continuously improving process, and has a hands-on approach to solution provision."

Over the initial few months of working for NYX, Menlo is already supplying its market outlets in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, France, the UK, Spain, Ireland, Russia and Dubai. Menlo's Managing Director in Europe, Tony Gunn, comments: "We are obviously set for a rapidly developing supply chain mix with NYX in the future. We believe that our reputation for proven continuous improvement will help us meet these challenges. We also hope that the service platform we establish for NYX will open doors for us in the personal care product sector of the market."
