Pall Corporation, a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, has opened an expanded Hoegaarden office after 8 months of construction. A ribbon-cutting ceremony held in early December was attended by Pall leadership, local government officials, and Zaventem and Brussels associates.
The Hoegaarden facility expansion includes 2,000 m² (over 21,000 sq. ft) of new office space providing work stations for 100 employees, in addition to new research and development, customer demonstration labs, and manufacturing space. Three Belgian locations have been combined into the one location, bringing headcount in the Hoegaarden office to over 300 full time equivalent employees.
“The expanded Hoegaarden site has it all: offices, labs, and manufacturing space for development and optimization of customer processes. With this site, we will be better equipped to provide whole service to customers in the area, while supporting the local economy,” Mario Philips, Vice President and General Manager of Pall Biotech said. “In this new space, we have consolidated three Pall Belgian offices as one, which is why we have designated Hoegaarden as a hub of strategic importance for our future growth.”
Mario Philips and Raf Vanheel, Pall Hoegaarden Plant Manager were joined by Hoegaarden City Mayor Jean-Pierre Taverniers and City Counselor Hans Decoster to commemorate the official opening of the building.
