Bewo moves: a new location for an innovative future
Bewo Cutting Systems B.V. will be moving per 1 October 2014. After being located in Tilburg for almost 80 years, the Dutch developer and manufacturer of the strong manually operated circular saws (the Bewo CPO) and the high performance automatic cutting machines for tubes, will be moving to a new and more spacious location in Waalwijk. With this move Bewo anticipates on the growing demand for automated solutions for tube cutting from her market. The premises are located next to highway A59 and therefore better accessible. It also has modern facilities, including a training area. It is the right place for further growth and making ambitions come true.
With the recovering economy Bewo sees a rise in demand for the further automation of production processes. The new premises in Waalwijk facilitates the increase in demand. Also Bewo’s automatic cutting lines are becoming more extensive and ask for more production surface. A complete Bewo cutting line usually consists of an automatic cutting machine, a deburring machine, a length control system, a cleaning machine and a stacking robot with discharge unit. In Waalwijk a Showroom & Education Center will be established where Bewo will present their intelligent cutting solutions and where agents and operators will be educated in the world of automated cutting.
All activities during the moving will go on. Not just in the office, but also in the factory everything continues. Operations Manager Frans van Gorp explains: “Our customers will not be bothered by our move. While we are working in Tilburg we start building a next cutting line in Waalwijk too. For the simultaneous building of multiple cutting lines a strict organisation is required, so we have arranged everything down to the last detail.”.
Bewo has made a lot of history in Tilburg. The company was founded in 1936 as an Engineering Office and they were located in Tilburg for almost 80 years. Since the fifties they took in the production of cutting systems. They further developed the cutting systems and one after another innovative developments followed. In the beginning of the sixties Bewo became the producer of complete automatic cutting machines, consisting of: cutting, deburring, measuring, length control, cleaning and stacking of tubes. Nowadays they still produce the complete automatic cutting machines and the renowned manually operated circular saws: the Bewo CPO-315. Both the complete solutions for cutting lines and the Bewo CPO-315 go to customers all over the world.
Frans van Gorp ends by saying: “With the new location in Waalwijk we have found a good place for making our ambitions come true. We are ready for an innovative future!”.
