Japanese firm Kobelco Construction Machinery is expanding its European headquarters. The firm is relocating its headquarters from Almere to a larger new purpose-built facility in Lelystad.
When Kobelco first returned to Europe in 2013, the location of its headquarters and spare parts warehouse in Almere, The Netherlands, was ideally situated for servicing its European dealers. Over the past 10 years, KCME has experienced dealer network growth and will expand its operations to a larger, purpose-built facility in Lelystad.
KCME has been working with renowned Genemuiden-based contractor, Groothuis Bouwgroep, and MK23 Architects from Utrecht, to finalise the design of the impressive new 17,500m2 building, which will be situated on 30,000m2 of land owned by Kobelco. The new facility, which is close to the A6 highway, will comprise of three main buildings, including warehouse facilities, training centre and three-floor offices. There will also be a demonstration field for Kobelco construction machinery.
