DHL subsidiary opens new UK mail facility

Hans-Dieter Petram, Deutsche Post World Net's Board Member for Mail, has opened a new mail and document solutions facility for Deutsche Post World Net's UK subsidiary Williams Lea. The approximately 6,500 sqm mail centre is the base for around 400 employees working to provide internal and external communication services for companies such as electronic printing, document and correspondence management for corporate clients.

Since Deutsche Post World Net became Williams Lea's majority shareholder the international mail and document services provider has continuously expanded its business. The leading provider of value-added mail and document services has penetrated new markets in the USA and Australia and gained new clients for its Corporate Information Solutions business.

"Williams Lea's continued strong track record enhances Deutsche Post World Net's international mail logistics business. This is an excellent base that allows us to leverage the opportunities offered by the ongoing liberalization of international mail markets," commented Petram, Deutsche Post World Net's Board Member for international and domestic mail. "It will also help to maintain profitability in the mail division as the expiry of our exclusive license in Germany draws closer."

In early 2006 Deutsche Post World Net became the majority shareholder in Williams Lea. Employing a workforce of around 6,500, Williams Lea generated around EUR 650 million in revenues in 2005.
