Construction Van Raam in Varsseveld

Because of Van Raam’s continuous growth of the past years, Van Raam had become too big for its premises at the Aaltenseweg 56 in Varsseveld. That's why we now have a new and modern premises with a modern factory, offices and showroom. In January 2019 we've moved and we can be found at the Guldenweg 23 in Varsseveld. On this special 'construction-page' you can read more about the new building and the move.
