Independent offices and a large warehouse with a loading dock to speed up the transfer of the machines are also highlights of the new facility.

Next to the offices, the new center has an amphitheatre intended for the hosting of presentations and seminars, as well as a number of rooms for technical and commercial training. The expectation is that around 300 people will be trained at the site annually.
