Pall Biotech Expands Facility in Hoegaarden, Belgium 

Pall Corporation has announced the opening of its expanded Hoegaarden office after eight months of construction.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony held in early December was attended by Pall leadership, local government officials, and Zaventem and Brussels associates.

The expansion included 2,000m² of new office space providing work stations for 100 employees, in addition to new research and development (R&D) lab, customer demonstration labs, and a manufacturing space.

Three Belgian locations have been combined into the one location, bringing headcount in the Hoegaarden office to ore than 300 full time equivalent employees.

Vice-president and general manager of Pall Biotech Mario Philips said:“The expanded Hoegaarden site has it all: offices, labs, and manufacturing space for development and optimisation of customer processes. With this site, we will be better equipped to provide whole service to customers in the area, while supporting the local economy.

“In this new space, we have consolidated three Pall Belgian offices as one, which is why we have designated Hoegaarden as a hub of strategic importance for our future growth.”

Mario Philips and Pall Hoegaarden plant manager Raf Vanheel were joined by Hoegaarden City Mayor Jean-Pierre Taverniers and City Counselor Hans Decoster to commemorate the official opening of the building.
