Perfection in confection
De Molen Agro b.v. has been located in Naaldwijk since 2005. This independent company, which works together with Peter Dekker Installaties, specialises in fabricating screen cloths. For the past 10 years, the company has been run by Steven Roth and Henk Vijverberg.
The work of De Molen Agro is mainly to provide screens that need to roll with steel wires and retractors. For proper installation and functioning of a roller screen, the top is fitted with a steel wire. This steel wire is then tensioned to allow the screen to be hung properly. A rope core is attached to the underside of the screen, which is then slid into a roller tube.
Most of the work is therefore done on a project basis. However, it can also happen that a fault occurs or a broken roller screen needs to be repaired. Many cloths, without confection, are kept in stock at De Molen, making it possible to react quickly and resolve the fault for the customer. For PDI, De Molen Agro has become an essential component.
In recent years, the company has experienced healthy growth. The growth at PDI, as well as the fact that De Molen Agro b.v. is getting more and more orders from third parties, meant there was more and more demand for the manufacture of cloths for roof roller screens, facade screens and twin walls.
The current location proved to be no longer suitable to handle this growth. This year, therefore, De Molen will move to a new location about 400 metres away. This is a very spacious building that will be used for several purposes. De Molen will have a wonderful new confection machine that can fabricate cloth of up to 6.00 m wide. The building will also be used to store all types of screen cloths used by PDI. As a result, there will soon be a hall where there are only screen cloths.
Biersteker Geveltechniek is currently installing new facade cladding. Partition walls have been installed in the hall so that the confection area and storage are separated. New offices and a canteen have also been added. De Molen Agro is very much looking forward to taking this new location into use.
