Efficiency, automated and cost-effective working is our biggest goal. Only 3 men are needed to operate the machine, the rest will all be operated from our (web) systems.

Why Dutch-based production?

The most important reason for the decision to produce the dust-bags ourselves in 2015 (10 years later) are:

  • very bad exchange rate EURO to USD/CNY, it hasn’t been this bad for 10 years.
  • longer lead time as before
  • Container prices not steady, and fluctuating strongly
  • change of attitude of the Chinese
  • labour costs increase in China each year by 20%
  • independent production from our EU competitors
  • constant and better quality from our own productio
  • more flexibility in production/lead time
  • more flexibility in specifications
