With headquarters in Bedford UK Ceetak’s primary focus includes application engineering, while providing customers with quality products and commercial added value solutions. “As our business has grown, we have experienced an increase in our customer base across Europe, and it is for this reason we have taken the strategic decision to set-up a European facility, creating a new platform for growth and to strategically support customers,” Andy Cleaver, Managing Director at Ceetak explains.

“Opening this facility allows us to operate closer to our European customers and continue to develop logistical solutions deliver better commercial advantages. Fundamentally, we want to focus on the ease of doing business for our customers. In addition, a closer proximity to our European customers will support the company’s sustainability goals in helping to reduce carbon footprint.”

Ceetak suits the strengths of the region

Marloes de Goeijen, advisor new businesses at Oost NL, assisted Ceetak with their location choice. “Ceetak is a welcome addition to our region. Their business of engineered sealing solutions suits the strengths of other industries in the East of the Netherlands, where we have a strong semiconductor and energy sector. We wish Ceetak all the best with their new location.”

Andy Cleaver: “From the outset of the expansion project Oost NL has been fantastically supportive from initially helping to find a suitable location, then providing introductions to a range of professionals including lawyers, accountants and helping with recruitment. Having established a facility within the Netherlands we foresee tremendous opportunities for growth across several of our key sectors, which will require continued investment including infrastructure and local employment. As part of Ceetak Corporate Social Responsibility we are always keen to support local communities and to this end we are actively looking for opportunities.”
