Open day from 2 - 3 June attracted many interested customers from all over Belgium.

On June, 1st 2018, GRIMME Belgium opened its new location at Roeselare (Belgium), about 90 km west of Brussels. On an area of one hectare GRIMME set up a modern building of 2,900 m² with an integrated show-room, workshop, offices and warehouse for spare parts.

In his speech to more than 80 invited guests, Franz Grimme emphasised that Belgium has been one of the most important markets for the Grimme family company for over 60 years.

Belgium is the world's largest exporting country of frozen potato products and is also very successful in growing of beets and vegetables. The high level of mechanization requires a highly professional machinery service and a prompt supply of spare parts. These increased customer requirements are assured with the new modern location.

All employees were involved in the relocation from Houthem (Belgium) to Roeselare (Belgium). Franz Grimme thanked all 20 employees for this step and their extraordinary commitment for the further development of this very important market.
