Riwal moves to new, sustainable head office

After seven years at its current location in Dordrecht, the Netherlands, Riwal is moving its head office to a new location in the town, at Galvanistraat 35.

The office is an existing building, refurbished to the A+++ energy standard, and is next to the office and workshop for its Benelux operations.

No fossil fuels are used for heating and hot water, with the building served by new electricity driven HVAC systems. To compensate for the electricity consumption, Riwal has installed three solar panels with a total capacity of 381.000 Wp (watt-peak). 

The annual saving on CO2 emissions will be approximately 157,380 kg.

The solar energy will also charge Riwal’s electric cars and equipment, helping Riwal deliver “sustainable services to its customers: an electric machine charged with green energy.”

Pedro Torres, CEO of Riwal, said; “Moving our office fits many of our company’s goals. This renovated building is a step up in our sustainability level, obviously very important as one of our core values.

“And it means taking a new step in offering a great place to work: from now on, our HQ is next to our Dutch operations, making it easier for teams to connect and intertwine.”

Riwal operates in 14 countries, managing a fleet of approximately 20,000 machines - mainly aerial platforms, telehandlers and generators - and employs more than 1,400 staff.
