Dutch-Shape is planning to expand its production facilities in 2016 by a further 2,300 m². The purchase contract for the necessary land was signed on 26 November 2015. The new production shop to be built will be linked to the existing production facility and means an almost doubling of the available production facilities. With this expansion, Dutch-Shape is making an advance on future positive developments. Construction work is already expected to start in January 2016.

According to General Director, Guus Engelen, Dutch-Shape has a string wind in its sails. ‘We innovate and specialise constantly for leading international clients from the aircraft construction industry. And that pays off in new and larger products, techniques and, very important, new clients. That is why we succeed in achieving better export figures every year. In 2014 we had already moved from Rijssen to larger premises in Borne, but we can already see that we will again need more production space in the near future.’

Handover mid-2016

‘By already anticipating a fixed expansion, we are avoiding the risk of a lack of space soon becoming a hindering factor. And through our growth we will remain an interesting partner for our clients in the future. Now that the purchase contract for the land has been signed, the construction work can already start at the beginning of January. The handover of the new production shop will then take place in mid-2016’.
