Rhebergen Composites opts for new facility
Published: Wednesday, 21 August 2013
Composite constructor Rhebergen Composites of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, recently signed an agreement for a new facility in Wormerveer opening in January 2014. The new facility will boost the company’s progress considerably.
About 20 kilometres from its current location, Rhebergen Composites opted for a location with considerably more options than is currently enjoys. The new facility is a large, modern, freestanding production hall, with an adjacent office, all constructed out of high-quality materials. The hall offers enough space for all necessary production procedures and it has two overhead cranes and a separate grinding bay, which can also be used for painting.
The facility features (see rendering above) large overhead doors so that projects can easily be moved around. It is connected to the waterway system located some 500 metres away. “These aspects were very important to us in choosing this building since components for the superyacht industry are usually of considerable size and better transported by water,” explained Operational and Finance Director Ad Broos.
Rhebergen Composites is a specialist in custom-made solutions in marine composites, especially for the superyacht industry. The new facility offers the kind of high degree of options needed in this industry and matches the company’s focus: turnkey delivery from development, design and engineering to construction, painting, transport and mounting.
This December there will be a phased move to the new location so as to be fully operational there in January 2014. The official opening will follow in March.
