Valuable floor space

Every year companies get more and more aware of the fact that floor space is a valuable thing. They want to utilise their square meters in the best way possible. This causes the Vertical Transport market to expand every year. Claudia van den Pol says: ‘’Every year we got more and more quote requests, especially for the international market. And with the promise of APOLLO to be 24/7 available and in the customers own language and environment, we had to expand. With the new location in Thailand, we can keep that promise. ‘’
