Component welding, processing and painting
Vlassenroot’s factories are equipped with the latest processing facilities. Large-sized and complex components are welded, mechanically processed and painted in Germany or Poland. Finished products are then sent to the customer for final assembly.
The company’s Poland facilities are equipped with three processing stations. Two have surface areas of more than 80m², and a third more than 240m². The stations also have CNC-controlled turning and milling heads.
