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-square metre two-storey building features a splendid showroom, a training centre, a meeting room and a coffee room.

During his speech, Mr De Clercq, Managing Director of Petersime nv, thanked all employees, suppliers and stakeholders for their commitment.

He said: "By investing in our production facilities, we can guarantee Petersime's 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."
