The extensive two-floor office wing, as well as the expanded production area and the renewed R&D facility, are fully in line with today's standards. These new facilities bring Marel on pole position once again, ready to tackle all future developments with great confidence.

Marel’s supplying equipment and solutions for the poultry, meat and fish processing industry continue to develop a steady growth curve in Boxmeer. This required more room for more production, more ideas and more employees, noted the company.

Work and research

“The investment in a renewed and extensive facility was necessary to provide all of our people with the best possible working environment,” said Anton de Weerd, managing director at Marel Poultry.

A total of 1700 sq m of office space is reserved for 150 workstations on two floors.

In the new R&D centre, the research and development teams of Marel Poultry, meat and further processing come together, stimulating cross-pollination and collaboration within their fields of expertise.

Inspiring atmosphere

Wood elements on the outside and the interior design give the new building a modern look and feel. The façade of the existing building complex also got a wood panel finish, creating a visual unity.

Weerd noted, “This investment confirms the strong position of Marel in Boxmeer now and in the future. The Boxmeer site is also the heart of the Marel Poultry division where many innovations have been developed and launched over the past 55 years; this underlines once again the importance of the agri-food sector in our Brabant region.”
