Dutch Sites Open Their Doors

Four of Akzo Nobel’s sites in the Netherlands opened their doors over the weekend as part of a national Chemical Open Day event.

The company’s HQ in Arnhem and the plants in Deventer, Delfzijl and Hengelo all welcomed visitors on Saturday, who were given a look behind the scenes and introduced to the world of chemical research and production.

Various demonstrations and tours were staged, while children were also allowed to conduct their own supervised experiments.

It's the 14th time the popular national event has been staged, helping to improve community relations and offering the younger generation an insight into the exciting world of chemicals.
