KLUISBERGEN, Belgium (Aug. 6, 2012)—Polyurethane boot maker Bekina Boots NV is investing in a 7,750-sq.-ft. office building at Kluisbergen, Belgium.
The boot specialist said the offices incorporate advanced technologies for employee comfort. Bekina, part of the Vanderbeke group, said new offices became essential because of the strong growth in recent years and a subsequent increase in the number of employees.
Family-owned Bekina makes lightweight PU boots—much lighter than rubber or PVC boots, the company said.
Bekina supplies PU boots to the farming sector, the food processing industry and for general industrial and leisure uses.
