One distribution, the parent company of supra footwear and kr3w denim, announced the relocation of its emea head office from biarritz to barcelona. the forecast of the company is to create at least 30 jobs within the first two years of the relocation.
the new head office, which also contains two showrooms, is located in a building of 1,000 square meters in the city’s neighborhood of poblenou, which is also barcelona’s innovative 22@ district. the company decided to move to the catalan capital, a skating mecca, attracted by its highly cosmopolitan nature and artistic culture.
according to the vice president of one distribution emea, gary parsons, “as a rapidly growing global skateboarding and lifestyle company, the move made perfect sense. barcelona has deep roots in skateboarding and fashion, the major premise on which one distribution’s brands were founded. being able to call barcelona home keeps us in touch with our core principles”.
one distribution now has offices in the usa, spain, uk, france, germany, china, and australia. founded in 2003, its products are sold in over 60 countries around the world.
invest in catalonia - the foreign investment attraction area from the government of catalonia- has given support to one distribution’s new project, offering logistic and taxation system information and putting the company in contact with suppliers.
