The event was attended by representatives of the government of Zulte, the management of shareholder Food Processing Systems, and Petersime's major Belgian customers, suppliers, and scientific partners. After the official cutting of the ribbon, the guests enjoyed a guided tour through the Customer Centre and the production facilities and a reception.
Petersime's expansion project, aimed to double the production capacity, was launched in 2009. The new production and logistical facilities entered into service in May 2010. Construction of the new Customer Centre started shortly after that. The state of the art 840 mÂ² two-storey building features a splendid showroom, a training centre, a meeting room, and a coffee room.
During his speech, Michel De Clercq, Managing Director of Petersime, New York thanked all the employees, suppliers and stakeholders for their commitment. He also added that by investing in the production facilities, Petersime can guarantee its continuous growth and market leadership. Moreover, with the Customer Centre, we have everything we need to train our existing customers and to inform potential customers of our products and services in the best possible way.
