Verdo Staalconstructies specializes in the production and construction of sheds and halls and all the steelwork for stairs, landings and fencing that goes with it. Last year, more than 1,200 tons of steel were processed for this purpose. For production, the company has CNC-controlled machines for cutting, sawing and drilling. “To make the growth of the company possible with a limited availability of skilled workers, you have to look critically at the time allocation of the individual activities. Welding is not one of our core activities. If you can leave that to a welding robot, you can spend
more time on assembly and installation on the building site,” is the vision of the entrepreneur who started the company 21 years ago.
Purchase of welding robot
In addition to the usual construction work for halls, Verdo has built a number of liquid containers. “A typical assembly job that involves a lot of welding. After we had manually welded the first one, we noticed that the welding work put a heavy strain on the company and our employees. That was the deciding factor for us to buy the welding robot.
