KYZEN Expands Capabilities in Belgium

Nashville, TN — In response to in- creased demand for its electronics and metal finishing cleaning products, KYZEN has relocated and significant- ly expanded its operations in Belgium. The new 12,200 ft2 (1,200m2) facility in Aalter, Belgium, is now located to better serve the company’s growing base of customers in Europe. The increased space will facili-

tate the expansion of the local appli- cations laboratory and provide much needed additional space for ware- housing and logistics to meet in- creased European demand. The Aal- ter applications laboratory is one of six such labs that KYZEN operates around the world. “This facility expansion and re-

location was driven by KYZEN’s growing success in Europe,” said Tom Forsythe, KYZEN’s executive vice president. “We had simply out-

grown our previous space. Expansion of the applications lab has been a pri- ority to increase our capabilities and responsiveness to customer requests. KYZEN is committed to serving our clients where science and care con- verge, and these new capabilities will enhance our abilities to meet those goals.” A key driver of the company’s

growth in Europe is the recent intro- duction of the breakthrough KYZEN ANALYST process management technology, which is, reportedly, the first Industry 4.0-ready management system for cleaning systems in the industry.
