After a strenuous relocation involving the moving of many large, very heavy machines and a great deal of hard work and muscle power, we are off to a flying start in our new premises in Klingenthal. The opening was celebrated by the whole Van Laar team from the Netherlands and Germany, together with many delightful and delighted guests who thoroughly enjoyed the sumptuous buffet. In his speech, Hub van Laar thanked all those who had participated in the successful move and paid special tribute to his expert Czech employees by addressing them in their own language. Hub praised the new building for its size, lightness, airiness, and optimal position, even going as far as calling it a “gift from God”. To put it in a nutshell: all our efforts and hard work have been well rewarded.
