Witcom Engineering plastics, part of the Wittenburg Group, recently took on the next step towards 4-star certification under the BREEAM  environmental certification systems. This is in line with the vision of Witcom and the Wittenburg Group to operate even more sustainable for a better future.

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), first published by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in 1990, is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings. More than 250,000 buildings have been BREEAM-certified and over a million are registered for certification – in more than 50 countries worldwide.

During expansion of the Witcom factory in Etten-Leur back in 2016, first steps were being made to achieve the highest possible BREEAM certification. With the recent activation of the PV-panels, the highest rating of four stars is now in sight for full certification early 2019.

Please notify that Xunfeng have restarted production & shipment on 28th of August.

The news about the impact of Typhoon Hato on Southern China has been widely covered in almost all news channels. Like the rest of the world, Xunfeng is shocked at the human cost , devastation and suffering caused by Typhoon Hato in southern China, and expresses its deep sympathy to all affected. Fortunately, Xunfeng suffered no casualties.

Typhoon Hato resulted in a shutdown of the Xunfeng production location in Zhuhai, Guangdong province China. At this moment, we are making an estimate of the damage as Xunfeng currently is without electrical power, telephone and internet. Shipments from Xunfeng will probably not be possible in the coming days. Our current expectation is that we will be operational again after this weekend, 28th of August.

For urgent questions, please telephone our employees on their mobile phone numbers. We are also at your service from Wittenburg operations in the Netherlands, +31 (0) 36 20 00 300. For e-mail, please use: AD@wittenburgbv.nl.
