The new building offers Panacol employees a contemporary work environment with more than 6,000 m2 space. The laboratories for research and development, application engineering, and quality management are equipped with state-of-the-art technology that increases in-house analytical and testing capabilities. A larger production area with additional new equipment has increased manufacturing capacity and efficiency. The new facilities can be expanded to support further growth in the coming years.
