New headoffice Filoform B.V. in the Netherlands
After eighteen succesful years in our old office, we have now moved to a brand new facility. This state of the art building was specially designed for Filoform and is equipped with the latest technologies in the area of sustainability.
Partly thanks to this new location, Filoform can continue supporting customers in the future with specialist knowledge and innovative products.
The new location plays an important role in realizing our goal of achieving a CO₂ reduction of 93% by 2020. Below an overview of some energy-efficient applications in the new building.
In addition to these energy-efficient applications, the production lines of our resins have been completely renewed and we are working with larger storage tanks which are directly supplied from a tanker. This reduces the number of deliveries and transport movements in the chain.
The new location offers a nice working environment for Filoform staff with good facilities for a responsible and healthy working environment. All in all, the new building provides a strong foundation for the future of Filoform.
Duct Sealing Times, sealing the correct way
Over the past 15 years Duct Sealing has become an important factor when designing and constructing new buildings; however, it remains both a task and a product that a lot of companies overlook and underestimate the time required to effectively seal ducts. The majority of end users & specifications of duct seal products require a quick & simple installation, with a re-enterable seal that can cope in extreme circumstances. Water & Waste Treatment plants, areas where hydrocarbons are present, buildings within high water tables areas, and oxygen suppression systems in data centres are just a few examples (and there are many more) where difficult circumstances are encountered requiring a specialised product to be utilised. Filoform designs and manufactures specially formulated products where one product can cover all requirements.
