Etten-Leur, August 2018 – During the 1st half of 2019, Fri-Jado’s headquarters and production facility will move from Etten-Leur to Oud Gastel. The new premises are currently being built at industrial area ‘Borchwerf II’ in Oud Gastel (close to Roosendaal), about 15 kilometers west of the company’s current location. Similar to the current building, the new building will include a production facility, warehouse, office, canteen, showroom, demo kitchen and R&D lab.
Fri-Jado is a growing, innovative and financially healthy company. With its equipment, Fri-Jado has been helping customers to take advantage of the latest trends and developments in their market for over 80 years. To keep delivering products that meet today’s and tomorrow’s standards, Fri-Jado needs a production facility that meets these standards as well.
The office and production facility are currently located in a relatively old building that requires a lot of maintenance. A completely new building allows Fri-Jado to create a new, tailor-made production facility that is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, that allows for further automation of sheet metal work and that provides a pleasant working environment. This is exactly what Fri-Jado needs to be ready for the future.
Proper measures will be taken to facilitate a smooth transition of Fri-Jado's operations. For example, a safety stock of specific equipment will be created. Critical machinery will be replaced instead of moved to minimize the impact on production and lead times.
