Our European site in Dilsen has gone from strength to strength in 2021 and has become a key facility for our EU based customers.
With improvement in processes, facilities and personnel last year was a huge success for the Dilsen-Stokkem site. We have put together some key highlights and features summarising 2021s performance.
key performance statistics
In 2021 the Dilsen site CAPEX project came to fruition with facilities development in a number of areas to develop the site, increase storage and capabilities to meet our customers growing needs. Below is an overview of some of the sites developments:
The exterior signage of the distribution building was modernise with the companies updated branding.
The buildings exterior was also painted to best match our corporate colours.
The Link project due for completion early 2022 has been the main CAPEX project at the Dilsen site over the last few months. Previously there was no connection between the sites production building and distribution building.
The link building will create a seamless journey for the parts we produce in their production process and remove exposure to outside elements.
Outdoor Storage Space
Due to an unprecedented demand in storing products we have developed a new storage area in land that was previously unused.
The additional 2000m2 area will allow us to store and manage stock to continue meeting our customers schedules in 2022 and beyond.
New Paintbooth Installation
Another vital development for the site was the installation of a new paint booth and kitchen which was installed to meet an increase in parts being painted on-site.
The Dilsen site also its largest product to date for a European Heavy Machinery OEM. The 6.8T counterweight was finished and painted on-site and distributed to the customer across its multiple sites.
