And it's to be in Brum. This is the first time the US lock manufacturer has had a European warehouse. Kryptonite's Euro distributors will order directly from the Birmingham warehouse, shortening shipping lead times.

Kryptonite to open European warehouse

Kryptonite is taking space in an existing warehouse used by its owner since August 2001, Ingersoll-Rand.

Stock will now ship within five days to locations throughout Europe.

Kryponite execs believe that some distributors will see cost reductions through reduced shipping and import fees as well as better cash management by having to hold less inventory.

Customer service activities remain in Canton, Massachusetts.
