Online retailer SurfStitch has made a spectacular launch into the European market, with the opening of dedicated headquarters in France.
The site will include a 8000sqm purpose-built distribution centre.
The Billabong-backed operator has achieved over 100 per cent year-on-year growth since its launch four years ago.
It was ranked number four in the 2011 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a report on the country's fastest growing technology companies.
SurfStitch managing director said the site sells up to 10,000 items per day both nationally and globally.
“We’ve tried and tested this model in Australia, and have also been serving customers globally from the very beginning.
With SurfStitch now also located in Europe, customers can expect an even stronger online retail experience – from a seamlessly designed and stunningly visual website, to SurfStitch’s industry leading shopping and delivery experience."
SurfStitch has set up its European base in Hossegor on the Atlantic coast of southwest France.
SurfStitch Europe is now live with 150 top surf, mountain and fashion brands.
SurfStitch has a target of 500 brands by 2013.
