€4 million investment and more than 20 new jobs

It’s all hands on deck at paint manufacturer Mathys® in Zelem (Halen) in Belgium. Parent company RPM has chosen the Limburg site as the centre of its European activities and is consequently providing new infrastructure and employees. The company also has plans for a brand new distribution centre in the region. “The result of our strategy to invest instead of save in times of crisis,’ says the company’s management. ‘The grass is not greener on the other side. There is definitely a future for industrial production in Belgium.’’
