PICS International Rescue - Rue de Luxembourg, Brussels, Belgium
Over the last two decades we have established a vibrant Export division and have established a number of successful distributorships across Europe, and further afield.
The PICS distributor in Belgium is a Dutch company named Pressplate, a company with whom we have been trading for more than 10 years, and who have enjoyed considerable success both in Holland and Belgium.
Pressplate have specialized in large commercial installations and these are normally planned well in advance. However, during the summer of 2000, at short-notice, Pressplate were given the challenge of installing 4000m² in 21 days on the Rue De Luxembourg in Brussels; we were delighted to hear of this success and immediately made arrangements for the supplies and materials required by Pressplate to be shipped to Belgium.
Under normal circumstances local contractors would have been used for the installation, however, due to a combination of factors, it transpired that local labour was not available. There being a very brief window of opportunity to complete the installation, Pressplate were facing a massive logistical problem. How could they complete the job without the skilled specialist labour to do it?
Pressplate contacted us to see if we had any bright ideas that might help them fulfil their commitments and we immediately set about the task. Within 7 days we had made arrangements for a team of 6 men, from our good friends at Traditional Paving in Oxford, to be in the Belgium Capital to carry out the installation.
Thankfully the project was completed on time and to exacting standards. The client expressed his gratitude to Pressplate for a first class project.
