Corporate gifting platform Sendoso established its European headquarters in Dublin last year.

Sendoso, the San Francisco-based corporate gifting company, has opened a new fulfilment centre in Dublin.

This marks the company’s first fulfilment centre in the EU. It already has one such site in Peterborough in the UK, as well as four others across Australia, Canada and the US.

Founded in 2016, Sendoso supports clients in sending corporate gifts, personalised merchandise, branded swag, e-gifts and virtual experiences at scale.

Last year, the company chose Dublin as the location for its European HQ after raising $100m in Series C funding to help with its global expansion plans.

It revealed plans to create 100 new jobs in the Irish capital and to establish a warehouse location for its European business.

The new fulfilment centre in Dublin will allow for “smoother, faster and more economical sending” of Sendoso’s corporate gifting services within the EU, according to CEO Kris Rudeegraap.

“This is another important step as part of our next phase of global expansion and, along with our European headquarters in Dublin, creates a strong foundation for the company in both Ireland and Europe.”

European customers will now have access to local Sendoso logistics experts to assist with shipping rules and regulations. Customers here will also get more customer support coverage while the local tech team develops features to improve the gift sending experience.

“As we continue to cement Sendoso as the industry leader in Europe, it was imperative that we establish the necessary infrastructure to support our continued growth in the region,” said Rajesh Purcell, director of global supply chain at Sendoso.

“The new fulfilment centre enables us to continue building meaningful relationships with our customers by providing an even more thorough and streamlined service across Europe and the globe.”

While Sendoso is now eyeing further growth in Europe, it was making cuts earlier this year. The company slashed 14pc of its global staff, with Irish employees potentially at risk, according to the Business Post.
