Mueller is going to move. There are plans to build a new facility in Groenlo, a town in the east-central portion of The Netherlands. The new facility will be located 10 kilometers (approx. 6 miles) from one of our current Dutch manufacturing facilities in Lichtenvoorde. Groenlo was chosen because of its close proximity to the current Lichtenvoorde location, easing the transition for the majority of the production employees. Working together in one location, our co-workers can better develop common goals and address customer needs.
The new facility will consolidate four locations the Company currently operates in The Netherlands: the head office in Assen, the service organization in Wesepe and the current plants in Lichtenvoorde. According to Wytze Tjepkema, General Manager of Mueller, “this project will combine the companies acquired in 2008 into one location creating a stronger culture and improving collaboration and efficiencies.” Pending final approval of construction plans and loan documents, construction should start in the summer of 2017 with a completion date projected to be in the summer of 2018.
