With the accomplishment of this step, the production capacity will be increased by 60%.
This expansion, with a 125-metre long tunnel kiln, is the equivalent to building a new factory. The third tunnel kiln has an impact on the production process, necessitating the expansion and up scaling of the entire manufacturing process.
The project was kicked off early 2011, supported by the parent company Andus Group BV, with the purchase and development of an adjacent 2.3 hectare lot on the Kromme Gouwe industrial estate in Gouda. Bringing the third tunnel kiln into service marks the end of a three-year countercyclical and intensive investment project.
