Production

In Hendrik Ido Ambacht, Bolidt has a modern factory with a state of the art machine park which complies with the most stringent environmental standards. Furthermore, our employees are trained to prevent all possible wastage of, among others, time, logistics and materials, entirely according to the LEAN philosophy. This results in maximum efficiency in production whereby the environmental impact is minimised.

This results in maximum efficiency in production whereby the environmental impact is minimised.

The tight and efficient production planning which Bolidt maintains, also has an effect on the purchasing of materials.

We are able to purchase just-in-time, in pieces, minimising the number of transports and preventing the need for keeping unnecessary stocks of raw materials. Furthermore, we work with a network of own and external transporters such that we can maintain a highly efficient transport planning. This results in a limitation of the CO2 emissions for the supply of materials. Ever more modern production planning enables Bolidt to produce as efficiently as possible, from white to black.

With a careful planning, we can also reduce the use of cleaning materials. In this way, the acetone consumption during the last years in the production for cleaning mixing equipment has been substantially reduced. One reason for the lower consumption is the transition to smaller units of packaging (from 200 l drums to 20 l cans). In addition, for the first cleaning phase soiled acetone is used and only for the second phase clean acetone is used. All soiled acetone is recycled (distillation) and returns as new cleaning agent. In 2012, Bolidt has switched to a more environmentally friendly and more user friendly cleaning agent which can also be regenerated.
