Please note that the measures below have been extended until at least 20 May 2020. If the measures are lifted, we will announce this on our website.

This weekend, the Dutch government announced stricter measures to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus. We consider it our social duty to take our responsibility and to limit the risks as much as possible. That is why we, too, have opted for stricter measures:

  • Our employees work from home as much as possible.
  • Our premises are closed to visitors.
  • Current deadlines are postponed.

Do you have an urgent question? Please e-mail us your telephone number with the request to call you back. We will contact you as soon as possible.

These measures apply at least until 20 May 2020.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.
