Proud of renewed accommodation in a trusted location
In the summer of 2019, Gouda Refractories started the complete redevelopment of the plantsite and its buildings at Goudkade 21 in Gouda, the Netherlands. In October 2020 everything was put into operation, including a new high-quality mixing line at the factory. The site now measures 70,000 m² and offers the possibility to carry out large projects.
Ready fot the future
With the purchase of the neighbor's site in 2011, we saw the opportunity to have a third tunnel kiln built in 2013, with a total length of 125 meters, increasing the capacity by 60%.
In the past year, a lot of work was done on the construction of a new office building. Two walkways connect the office building to a large new, state-of-the-art laboratory for product development, a new company restaurant for staff and modern changing rooms.
The unloading quay on the Gouwe was also renovated, so raw materials can be supplied directly from the Rotterdam port.
“We now have the space to carry out large projects, develop new products and the possibility to continue to grow in the future”.
