In order to further develop and to maintain the high quality of service, BW Asse provided to their customers in the past, BW Asse had to expand their current facilities. This was however not possible at the old location. That’s why they started the construction of a completely new building in 2007 in the industrial zone in Mollem. At the end of 2008, they left the old building in Stevensveld and moved into their new building in the industrial zone in Mollem near Asse.

The new building contains an administrative area, 2 large cooled workshops and 2 spacious warehouses of which 1 is cooled. The technical installations: ventilation system D is applied and the entire building is equipped with fire and intrusion detection, light fixtures are energy efficient, and the rainwater is recycled for the public health installation. A necessary cooling system was installed so that BW Asse can provide a wide range of product packaging to its customers. This way BW Asse could be the reference workshop for packaging in the region Brussels – Ghent – Antwerp.
