across borders with Derix.
“Thanks to the smooth communication, we were able to work successfully with DERIX across borders. The know-how of the large family business enabled the timely delivery of the customised building elements for 200 prefabricated hotel rooms, so that they could be installed on site in just two weeks. We were particularly impressed by the company’s adaptability: the standard product was soon adapted to the special requirement of supplying light, knotless silver fir as a surface. A logistical feat in these quantities that was masterfully solved.”
