VF Corporation (US) opens sustainable office in Antwerp

US-based apparel and footwear giant VF Corporation has opened a new sustainable office in Antwerp (Flanders), housing approximately 300 employees.

Supporting growth of iconic brands

The new office aims to support the growth of VF’s brands, such as Kipling and Eastpak. By choosing Antwerp, the sales and marketing teams are now closer to VF business partners and customers. The company’s new office will be an important business hub for VF and will house offices and showrooms.

“In order to support growth, we have chosen a new location that is easily accessible for our customers, partners and employees,” said Martino Scabbia Guerrini, group president at VF Corporation Europe.

Attracting local talent

Martino Scabbia Guerrini: “Antwerp’s reputation as Flanders’ fashion capital will help us recruit new talent and expertise for our brands and functions. After 50 years of operations in Flanders, this move represents a further milestone of our company’s development history in Europe.”

Familiar to the region

VF Corporation has been active in Flanders for more than half a century. Over the years and with the acquisition of major outdoor and lifestyle brands such as The North Face, Vans, Eastpak, Napapijri and Kipling, Flanders has become key for the company’s expansion in Europe and vice versa. With over 900 employees in the region, VF is an important employer for Flanders, with offices in Antwerp, Bornem and Sint-Niklaas.
