Construction continues for Van der Vlist

Construction work is well under way at Van der Vlist’s new facility in Schelluinen, the Netherlands.

The first pile was driven into the ground by a team of Van der Vlist’s general managers and managing directors, marking the start of construction works on a new office building and workshop.

The transport department and trucks have been located at Schelluinen since the initial development in December 2017, and the teams will continue working from portable cabins until the facility is completed.

Once complete, the facility will be home to Van der Vlist Technical Services, which is currently located in Groot-Ammers. The other departments, currently located in Groot-Ammers, will remain there.

Van der Vlist said that it expects to move into the facility this time next year.
