The Ardena Group, headquartered in Belgium, is currently expanding its Ghent site with an extra floor space of about 900 m2. The new infrastructure will be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
“The Belgian site has increased sales by an average of more than 15 percent per year in the last 12 years”, says Harry Christiaens, CEO of Ardena Group. “We’re running at full capacity. To anticipate any future growth, we decided two years ago to invest in the expansion of our infrastructure. We are now close to completion.”
The larger facility – 2.500 m2 in total – will provide additional lab and office space. It will also harbor a training & community center. “We are currently launching Ardena Academy”, adds Elke D’Hoker, HR Manager. “Our academy will facilitate the onboarding of new employees and provide in the permanent training of technical and soft skills of the entire workforce.”
