Forbo Visit to Amsterdam

As part of their annual visit to the Netherlands, Forbo Ireland Ltd. invited Andrew Judge as part of a 23 strong contingent of building professionals to visit their manufacturing plant in Krommenie. An impressive tour of the plant showed the natural materials used in the manufacture of the Marmoleum flooring material being processed from the raw state to finished product, as well as a visit to the highly automated distribution centre which handles orders worldwide.

An architectural highlights tour of Amsterdam included a number of recent buildings in which Marmoleum was used to great effect, including the OZW university building and the Zuwe Hofpoort Ziekenhuis hospital.
