A low-key celebration on the 4th of August marked the start of the construction of a new production facility for YongLi Europe. The new building is created across the road from the existing location in Oudkarspel, the Netherlands. It will house a brand new 2 meter production line. The existing production lines will also be moved into the new hall.

The newbuild was a dream we cherished for many years. The acquisition of Wellwaij and further expansion with subsidiaries in the Netherlands, Poland, Germany and Austria have led to considerable growth. The new facilities will enable us to keep innovating and continue to offer flexible delivery options. This will ensure a continued quick availability of our products and enhances our position in Europe.
Operational first half of 2021
While the building takes shape, the new production line is also under construction and will hopefully be installed by the end of the year. We expect to be fully operational in the first half of 2021. That includes moving the current production lines to the new premises and prepare the existing building to increase our stock capacity.
It is important for us to keep developing innovative, high-quality conveyor belts. The commitment of our team, the continued support of our parent company in China and of course the close relationship with our distributors and customers make it possible for us to take this major step in our Europe-wide development.
