Over the past few years, AWL-Techniek has experienced significant international growth. Besides its facilities in the Czech Republic, China, Mexico and this year's start in America, the Dutch welding machine builder will further expand its facilities in Harderwijk (the Netherlands). AWL has reached an agreement with the Municipality of Harderwijk for a building site of nearly six hectares on the Lorentz III industrial estate.
“Continuous investments in innovations, international production facilities and skilled employees have formed the basis for our growth in the past years. Innovations, which are tested and presented in our customer experience and training centre, will be given a prominent place in the new building. Besides innovations in joining techniques, there will also be sufficient room for launching more innovations onto the market,” said AWL-Techniek.
The first phase of the new building is planned to be completed by the end of 2018. In the first phase, an assembly factory of 10,000 m2 will be built, which could be doubled in the coming years. Office space of 4,000 m2 will also be incorporated into the factory. The office space will be fitted out with a meeting centre, modern workplaces, training areas, a company restaurant and fitness facilities.
