Change of management for Bierens

Published by
World Cement,

Following the take-over of Bierens by the PWT Group, the first steps of the transition are in place, with a number of new investments scheduled up to the end of the year. These investments will contribute to a higher performance for the Bierens organisation, resulting in:

  • A simplification of the manufacturing process through the use of fewer production steps.
  • The creation of a better workflow. 
  • The placement of new machines and work stations.

Customers will benefit from these new investments through a better delivery performance and higher First Time Right indicator.

Additionally, the new owners will be taking care of the governance of the new business identity of Bierens themselves, meaning that the previous CEO, Henk Meijer, became redundant as of 1 August. PWT Group would like to thank Hank Meijer for the turnaround results of the past years.
