Den Hartogh Cleaning opens second food line in Dordrecht
Den Hartogh Cleaning has opened a second food line in Dordrecht, the Netherlands. This, the company says, is in response to global developments, such as the establishment of an increasing number of major chemical factories outside Europe.
These market changes meant Den Hartogh Cleaning Dordrecht had an increasing amount of excess capacity for chemical cleaning but a shortage for cleaning food tanks. The company’s management team raised the issue of a second food line in Dordrecht with the board of Den Hartogh and, in July last year, the project was given the go-ahead.
Ground broke on the new facility in October 2014, following the completion of preparatory work such as demolishing the existing installation and thoroughly cleaning the soil. The new line, which meets all modern requirements, was built in two and a half months under the supervision of the Den Hartogh Cleaning technical service.
Cleaning according to HACCP or SGF procedures is possible, as is working in accordance with the customer’s detailed instructions. A complete monitoring system, in which all data is stored, provides complete insight into the process, such as the quantities of soap and water used, and also the procedure followed.
The doubling of capacity in Dordrecht offers Den Hartogh Cleanings’ customers, such as Albert Keijzer Transport, the possibility to clean more often and with shorter waiting times.
