    Electric charging stations in BOSS paints

    From today, when you visit BOSS paints in Waregem, you’ll be able to charge your electric vehicle using one of our two double-point electric charging stations, which have been fitted with Mennekes sockets. These charging stations were installed by PowerDale, so you can top up your car with BOSS paint’s green electricity through your Plugsurfing account. If you don’t yet have a Plugsurfing account, you will still be able to re-charge your car through the Bancontact app (by making a QR-code payment).

    A double-point electric charging station with Mennekes sockets is also available at our depot in Kontich.

    New tank farm in the production department at BOSS

    The obsolete tank farm in the production department has been subjected to intense scrutiny in collaboration with CGK at Gullegem in West Flanders.

    A tank farm is more than just a set of storage tanks grouped together. It also includes the pipework to convey the product, pumps to draw the product from the tanks and subsequently convey it to the take-off points, a filter system, flow meters, a system and controls for all manner of cocks and valves, electrical enclosures and a vast array of wiring to make it happen. The project took a couple of years and provided nothing but benefits on completion: greater safety, user-friendly control panels, accurate metering, increased storage capacity and reduced likelihood of errors due to a direct link with our production orders from the AX computer program.

    Entrepreneurs for everyone

    A study conducted by Flanders DC in collaboration with Vlerick demonstrated that the image of entrepreneurs is far from positive in Flanders. Even though the entrepreneurs give a lot back to their local environment (i.e. by innovating, training, providing employment opportunities, supporting charities, promoting scientific development, encouraging sustainability etc.)

    That is why Flanders DC and their partners want to tell people in Flanders about the stories behind the entrepreneurs, their motivations and their passions, and their impact on society. They aren’t just acting in their own interests, ultimately they benefit everyone. Our CEO has also contributed to this campaign #ondernemersvooriedereen. Entrepreneurs for everyone

    YOUCA Action Day

    The 12th edition of the YOUCA Action Day (formerly Zuiddag) took place on Thursday 19th October. On this day teenagers are allowed to miss school (just once) and try out the world of work instead. Pupils work in a company for a whole day to earn 50 Euros, which all goes to Youca to support youth projects at home and in the South (this year El Salvador). At BOSS paints we were happy to accept 12 pupils who had the opportunity to work as an environment coach, kitchen staff, production staff or even fulfil the role of CEO.
