The Hoegaarden, Belgium facility expansion includes 2000 m² of new office space providing work stations for 100 employees, in addition to new research and development, customer demonstration labs, and manufacturing space.

Three Belgian locations have been combined into the one location, bringing headcount in the Hoegaarden office to more than 300 full time equivalent employees.

"The expanded Hoegaarden site has it all: offices, labs, and manufacturing space for development and optimisation of customer processes. With this site, we will be better equipped to provide whole service to customers in the area, while supporting the local economy," said Mario Philips, VP and General Manager of Pall Biotech.

"In this new space, we have consolidated three Pall Belgian offices as one, which is why we have designated Hoegaarden as a hub of strategic importance for our future growth."

A ribbon-cutting ceremony held in early December was attended by Pall leadership, local government officials, and Zaventem and Brussels associates.

Mario Philips and Raf Vanheel, Pall Hoegaarden Plant Managers were joined by Hoegaarden City Mayor Jean-Pierre Taverniers and City Counselor Hans Decoster to commemorate the official opening of the building.
