KONI opens new office for headquarters


    OUD-BEIJERLAND, The Netherlands, May 24th – Today ITT’s CEO Denise Ramos officially opened KONI’s new office building for its headquarters in Oud-Beijerland, the Netherlands.

    The new structure replaces one that was destroyed by a fire in early 2015. Attendees - including KONI employees, CEO Denise Ramos and external suppliers - gathered together on opening day to toast this new chapter for KONI.

    The construction of the new building started in July 2015, just 6 months after the fire in January. With the help of some much appreciated suppliers, KONI colleagues and local governments support, construction started swiftly and finished with an immense pace. In the beginning of January 2016 the first employees were able to start working in the new building. Once everybody settled in in the first few months, it was time for a celebration.

    Denise Ramos, CEO of ITT Corp, had the honors of opening the new building officially and together with all parties involved, she toasted on this great achievement and on this new chapter for KONI.
