The challenge

Hörmann develops and produces doors of every imaginable type, including doors for the industrial market, such as dock seals for loading and unloading lorries, as well as garage and interior doors for the consumer market.

In their Alkmaar (Netherlands) factory Hörmann manufactures products such as dock levellers, dock shelters, dock and highspeed doors, and dock seals. In 2007, Hörmann expanded two production halls by an additional 2,000 m2. Today around 100 employees work at this location.

The expansion included the purchase of new welding robots to optimise the production processes in Alkmaar. Plymovent was then contacted for welding fume extraction systems.
