New branch Voortman France opens its doors

Recently, the new Voortman France branch near Lyon opened its doors. A local team has been put together to provide the best possible service to our French customers. They offer them the high service level they are used to from Voortman.


At our new location we will sell machines and support customers with maintenance, service and commissioning. In the future, we will also have room to sell Parts & Consumables here. The development and construction of our machines still takes place in Rijssen.


We started in France in 2013 with two technicians and an area sales manager. Due to the increasing sales, in 2019 the decision was made to start a physical branch here and to hire French employees who manage the projects and customers. In this way, we are literally close to our customers and we can serve them in their own language and in their own environment.


The team consists of two Sales Managers, local technical people for service, maintenance and installation, a project manager and an after sales representative. “With the new sales team, we can profile ourselves even better in the French market. But in order to actually distinguish ourselves in this market, a good aftersales service, with people who speak the language and understand the culture, is indispensable. We are now able to meet this need”, says Maxime Dagbert, Sales Manager of Voortman France.
