Now, the company has announced that architects have finished the design of a new building that will effectively double the size of the current headquarters in Kolding, Denmark, and allow production to be increased to meet the demand that those sales targets require. The new facility will add 1,500 sqm of floorspace, divided between sales and administration offices, and a canteen facility, with 350 sqm devoted to a dedicated showroom and test facility for customers. The existing 1,100-sqm building will be refurbished and commissioned exclusively for LEAN manufacturing and production.
Speaking for Vetaphone, Jan Eisby says, “We are very excited about the whole program as it represents a major investment and commitment from what is still a family business, albeit one that is now a major international player. And it’s to serve that global market that we have taken steps to grow our Sales Team, with extra people in the USA and Asia, and add to our capability in Denmark to meet the new higher levels of demand.”
Sales growth at Vetaphone is rapid, and is coming not only from traditional areas like narrow web, but also from the capability the company now has to offer corona and plasma treatment to a wider sector of business, in both senses of the word. From the pioneering days of Verner Eisby back in 1951, who developed a technique that allowed his friends to print on the new plastic materials that were becoming available at the time, to a leading global supplier of surface treatment technology, Vetaphone has always pursued a policy of quality products based on R&D. The new facilities at Kolding, Denmark, which are due for completion in August 2017, are designed to take the company through its next phase of growth.
