The current expansion adds 2,240 square meters of new production space, bringing the total production area of the workshop to 8,100 square meters. Office space has increased by 332 square meters, bringing the total office space space to almost 1,000 square meters.

Meanwhile, Heesen is hiring 30 employees, which will bring the total workforce in Winterswijk to 130.
