Marel unveils new production center in Dongen

This week, Marel officially opened its completely new production center in Dongen, the Netherlands. All production and office activities now take place in the state-of-the-art building at the Tichelrijt II business park.

For 60 years the production site in Dongen has been manufacturing machine parts for Marel Poultry. The end products, high-quality food processing systems, are assembled in collaboration with the Marel site in Boxmeer.

Since the former location in Dongen no longer met contemporary standards, the realization of a new production center was a logical yet exciting step. The new building basically accommodates the same activities as before. It features 40 production places as well as eight office places, now in a setting that is completely up-to-date. The relocation of the massive production machines was organized gradually over the last months and went very smoothly without interrupting customer deliveries.
Marel employees in Dongen can now make use of the most modern and sophisticated production facilities at their clean and healthy workplaces. All equipment, services and logistics of the new production center perform at the highest levels of quality, safety and ergonomics. Marel is convinced that this new, inspiring environment will lead to a lot of innovative and successful business.
Folkert Bolger, EVP of Marel, says, "We want to offer our employees the best conditions to work in. For our production location in Dongen, this means that we now have an optimally equipped business premises that meet the very latest requirements. During these last weeks of transition, we have already seen our people working here with even more motivation and enjoyment. When this new environment contributes to higher job satisfaction, it will almost naturally lead to the best possible production."
