NETHERLANDS Provisur Technologies, a Chicago-headquartered provider of high-performance food processing equipment, has opened a further processing sales and service facility in Huizen, Netherlands.

Provisur said that the new, modern logistics center, located near Amsterdam, will greatly enhance the company’s ability to support its customers in the EMEA region.

According to the company, the state-of-the-art facility was designed to optimize parts storage and improve productivity while meeting the highest energy efficiency standards to support Provisur’s commitment to sustainability.

“We’re very excited about opening a new facility in the Netherlands to further enhance our ability to provide customers with the high level of service they have come to expect from Provisur,” said Brian Perkins, Executive Vice President.
