Meet us in the Voortman Experience Center

“Yes, really! That steel processing machine is fully automated and even gives feedback. Sure. You first want to see if you can cut, drill or mill your own product on this machine. Or get a demonstration as an introduction? You can. We organize that for you. Make an appointment and your visit will be prepared in detail. That’s the Voortman Experience Centre.

See you then. Lunch will be ready”.

Seeing how machines work and how software facilitates your workflow. Seeing what you actually buy. Seeing who builds the machines. Seeing how you can broaden your horizons".

Umbrellas are ready for you should it rain, but today the sun luckily shines. All wearing safety vests? Come, let’s go to Parts 1 where plates are cut. There we will also see the welding of machine frames and bridges. From there, we walk on and see how we assemble electrical cabinets ourselves in a fully automatic way. During the tour, you will learn more about our digital solutions. Meet the Service Helpdesk to see who will be there for you. Finally, we will see live how fully automated production works. What does your future look like? Inspired? Come, we’ll walk back to the Voortman Experience Center. Time for coffee.
