Milestones of the company

Milestones of the company

30 years of continuous growth through expansion of capacities, new products and agencies in Europe.

Robert Cap is positive about the future: “We are a great team, we have developed considerably over the last few years and I am looking forward to the next few years”.

The new large company building offers more possibilities just by doubling the storage capacity for SEPA EUROPE. Due to the optimized processes in the warehouse, the import and dispatch of goods is now much more effective and SEPA EUROPE can offer its customers security warehouses.

The extensively modernised digitalisation in the last 5 years rounds off the latest innovations at SEPAEUROPE. The decision not to forget this area has proven to be more than just right in the anniversary year 2020.
