Inside BBT

The new sign for life!!

After the January wind storms destroyed our existing sign, we had to order a new one… we’re very happy last Tuesday was finally D-Day and the new sign was put on our pole!

Proudly we show off our BBT logo now 11 meters high!

The big round logo’s will be lighted at night with the most modern LED technology!

Now you know what sign to look for!

Introduction of our new picture booth Orbitvu Apha Shot XL

In order to make finally good pictures where we do not have rework or cut etc we made a pretty cool investment, not cheap by any means, but it works super profi and is super cool!

2 cameras, a white box and an electro powered 360° rotation table  and extreme software to make it all happen… position the part, push a couple of buttons, the machine does the work, and if You agree publish the just made “perfect” image immediately in your webshop! Wowh! that was refreshing to see!

For us it’s a time-saving of 20 minutes per picture! so we will have new pictures full force in our shop anytime soon!

View HERE the result.

If you want more information about this machine please check

and tell them You saw their product @ BBT.

 

BBT Flashback

These pictures been in our old shop in Brecht, “The Pigfarm” as we called it as that was what it used to be… this was our second location.

We worked hard as hell, but we had so much fun, young and powerful… oh no, we didn’t stop for the night…:)

Me behind the counter! When I still had hair! A lot of hair!…:)

Hein found the cars in Germany, when he had 7 beetles together, he called Jan, the transporter and he brought them over every other couple of weeks…

Fond memories…. for those who like the full story… we sold the building when we moved to our current building… about 7 years ago… the new owner teared down the whole thing and put a state of the art brand new cheese factory… we’re little bit like Las Vegas, 20 years is very old over here…LOL

Happy Sunday!!
