On October 16th, 2014 Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum celebrated the opening of the new sales and service office in the Netherlands. The former premises did not yield enough space for the growing local business and the new location in Utrecht offers better infrastructure and comfort.
Being close to customers is an important factor to meet the increasing demands of the local markets, also with standardized and fully customized vacuum solutions. The new premises of Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum Nederland B.V., founded in 1971, is located at Floridadreef 102, 3565 AM Utrecht. The location is in the center of the Netherlands and close to highways A2 and A27, thus offering improved logistics.
This new sales office, which includes a service facility and warehouse, allows to expand on the already highly experienced sales and service team. Customers will benefit from advanced technical services, fast turnaround times of quotations and first class customer service. Customers will also see advantages from the introduction of lean, effective processes with regard to stock keeping and logistics thereby reducing delivery times and optimizing management.
