Second production location for 247TailorSteel in the Netherlands27-06-2022
We recently announced the construction of our first factory in Belgium. And 247TailorSteel continues to grow! We are expanding further in the Netherlands and will be opening a second production location in Oud Gastel, near Roosendaal. This is the sixth site in Europe, following our factories in Varsseveld (NL), Hilden (DE), Oyten (DE), Langenau (DE) and Hooglede (BE). It will be the largest production location of 247TailorSteel until now.
The factory will be realised in an existing building at the industrial site. To achieve this, the premises will first be renovated so that they are in line with the innovative concept of 247TailorSteel. Renovation activities have already started and the location is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2023. The 25,000 m2 factory will be built on a site of 40,000 m2 and will eventually employ 270 people. 247TailorSteel has its very own machinery, which will be gradually expanded to include sixteen laser cutting machines, ten tube lasers and twelve bending machines. The factories of 247TailorSteel not only feature the latest laser machines, but also offer a clean and orderly working environment with many green trees and high-tech automation. Internal logistical processes are performed by AGV’s (automated guided vehicles), which automatically transport metal sheets and tubes to the support arm of laser cutting machines. In addition, solar panels have been installed on the roof of the factory.
This step will help us to realise our growth ambitions and reinforce our local presence. Our company operates more than 50 laser-cutting machines and more than 30 bending machines on a total floor area of 115,000 m². 247TailorSteel has set its sights on strong European growth. Besides the above-mentioned locations, plans are also being made for a factory in Austria and an another factory in Germany. A total of ten production sites should be in operation by 2025.
