August 15 BBT will be closed for the national bank holiday… we celebrate Mothers Day and want to wish all mom’s of planet earth a very happy celebration day.
It only takes some friends, some steel, some equipment, a lot of measuring and some guts to put cars on poles…
The idea was to get a more full view when you enter our car building, we always thought the dimensions above our cars where not in correct ratio with the entire views… so we decided to put our micro cars on poles to gain more visibility and gave the entire space inside a more cozy look… I think we succeeded…
Not for the faint at hearted, we had some serious grinding, welding and all kind of other construction works… some pictures from down the road we like to share with you!
The result is stunning and all we could ask for… as all visitors to our open house can agree… special constructions, should be a new job for us….another one…:)
The Heinkel Trojan looks the whole deal on his private pole with behind it the BMW Isetta and the Gogomobil…. high and dry… they remember me of storks sitting on their nests….:)
Big thanks for everybody involved and helped, mentally or hands on… this was a cool construction that kept us busy for a couple of days….
We’re proud on our warehouse, and we try to do everything to keep it clean.
Clean is important to us, as it saves a lot of breakdowns in our electronics, scanners, VCA’s and such, but also our orderpickers and reach trucks are electronic…
So we had already the small broom machine, but expanded with our own micro scrub, wash and water removal machine, all in one and very compact, perfect for in between shelves! We called our “kilo” and really, don’t ask me where that name comes from!
No dust in our warehouse anymore!
Alain started @ BBT on October 1st 1996… almost 21 years ago!
Started in our warehouse as picker & packer, Alain came in to the sales office pretty fast as assistant sales manager, and from there he became my personal purchase assistant, a job he would do very precious so he became our full purchase manager.
Many travels and adventures later and scanned the entire globe for Volkswagen parts Alain feels its time for an other challenge and realise that computer screens are not the only way he like to work and live….
We wish You a lot of success Alain, and hopefully can all your dreams come trough! we’re behind You!
Can You find Alain in every single picture above???? …:)
Alain’s Email is still working today and tomorrow, so you can say hi or goodbye!
