Netherlands: De Gier is expanding

For the last couple of months builders have been working around the clock expanding the existing business premises of De Gier. A natural consequence, as the company experienced persistent growth over the last few years. The current factory will be more than doubled in size.

De Gier manufactures drive systems such as motor gearboxes, racks, worm gearboxes and accompanying accessories for ventilation, screening and hoisting installations. These materials are used in the horticultural market, livestock holding and non-residential building.

Wouter Heezen (sales director) and Rob Sandberg (general manager)

General Manager Rob Sandberg: ”Due to the enormous growth in sales we need more space for our machines and assembly. We now have the chance to optimize our layout and product flow. The brand new logistics and assembly lines will contribute tremendously to the increase of our productivity. Next to that we’ve also invested a lot of time and effort in creating ergonomic workstations for our staff."

Below the extension a huge basement has been created. This basement will be used for logistical purposes and will serve as a car park. Two dock shelters are incorporated in the extension. This will make loading and unloading trucks much easier.

Rob Sandberg: “As production continues at full speed to keep up with the high demand our goal is to have the factory operational as soon as possible. We can’t wait to further extend our growing position on the world market."
