Hospitainer

Hospitainer develops and produces mobile and modular hospitals from standard sea containers. Oost NL supported Hospitainer with the search for alternative business locations and helped to choose between rental, acquisition or the renewal of the rental agreement.

Hospitainer offers the right tools for saving human lives in conflict and war regions, at disasters or in remote areas. Here, with the completely fitted mobile hospitals, including equipment, medicines, water supply and purification, washing machines etcetera, an important contribution is made by Hospitainer. It is a great regional company that experiences growth under its own steam and offers a contribution to this social challenge on a global level.

Clients such as the UN, NGO's, but also governments and the Ministry of Defence, know ow find Hospitainer. This results in Hospitainer’s considerable growth. Complete (temporary) hospitals as well as smaller field hospitals are built with the completely fitted containers. The UN employs them in war regions in the Middle East or in areas with victims of sexual violence, but Hospitainer also operates in areas in Colombia, where the FARC retreated from the jungle.

Ten extra jobs

The growth of activities and the expiration of the lease contract were the reasons to look out for a new location in Apeldoorn. Ultimately, a new and more representative location in Vaassen was chosen. For the coming period, Hospitainer expects to grow with ten extra permanent workplaces, next to several temporary workers who assist mostly with production and assembly.
