“We create space, in the most sustainable way.”  That’s what inspires us and what we stand for.

In a world where space is a scarce and valuable asset we help organisations worldwide to use space in the most efficient and effective way. With our storage systems, we save up to 75% of the storage space needed. By reducing the footprint of our customer, we make an essential contribution to a healthier world. Our own operation is CO2 and thus Climate Neutral. Our next ambition is to make the rest of our supply chain (as in suppliers and all transport movements, the so-called scope 3 of the Green House Gas protocol) climate neutral.

Being a market leader in Europe, we supply museums (in which we are world market leader), libraries, hospitals, offices and archives. Through our own sales offices and a worldwide network of distributors, we are represented in Europe, the United States, Asia and Australia. Organisations like the Rijksmuseum, the Louvre, Boijmans van Beuningen, the British Museum and Cambridge University, but also Deloitte, Rabobank and Securitas are among our customers. By continuously focusing on Corporate Social Responsibility we apply best practices in energy and water stewardship. Combined with attention to material health this supports sustainability of the planet (we reduce our footprint and that of the customer) as well as the wellbeing of every individual working with our solutions.

And this is all done with a passionate team of 200 colleagues, of whom 130 work at the head office in Panningen, where production and international distribution takes place.

Our goal is to continue to further grow the business in the coming years. This growth will be driven by geographical expansion, new segments like horticulture and Healthcare, innovation and renovation, operational excellence and, last but not least, communication. Both externally and internally, to accelerate, align and promote working towards a common goal.

To enable this growth there is a need to deepen and professionalise our marketing efforts. We see the marketing department as the heart of the future organisation.
