Asendia's new 70,000 sq ft facility, close to Heathrow Airport.
From Monday 16th September, the new 70,000 sq ft facility close to Heathrow Airport will house staff from La Poste, Swiss Post and the recently acquired
Pitney Bowes IMS UK. The building work was finished two days ahead of schedule heralding a good start to the new venture, says the company.
Asendia is a joint undertaking between La Poste and Swiss Post, two of the world’s leading postal operators, merging their knowledge and expertise in

and offer an exceptional range of services to our current and future clients,” commented Asendia UK CEO, Frédéric Petton.
“Bringing these companies together as Asendia will unify the indisputable heritage they already enjoy individually and cement their capabilities, and with
that we will substantiate our position as a major player in the world,” he added.
