Marine synthetic flooring and decking specialist Bolidt is now offering visitors a virtual tour of its Bolidt Innovation Centre, which is continuing research and development work during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The difficult situation we are now all in forces us to think creatively and outside the box on the way we work, where we work and how we can still collaborate and co-create,” said Jacco van Overbeek,  director of maritime at Bolidt. “So, we are excited that our customers can still experience the Bolidt Innovation Center virtually, if not physically. You will still get a chance to learn about our products and the chemistry behind them and explore the creative possibilities that they can unleash. Each of the virtual tours will be customised especially for individuals and for the industry they work in.”

A team at Bolidt will now give visitors the tour of the facilities using a specially developed app, allowing projects to be managed as normal. Guests will be able to view employees as they carry out research, while those using virtual reality can see advanced testing equipment and interact with exhibits.

The Bolidt Innovation Center received around 5,000 visitors last year, including representatives from Norwegian Cruise Line, Disney Cruise Line, YSA Design and SMC Design. Ten visitors have already taken the virtual tour in its first week.

“This is a great idea and I would highly recommend booking this virtual tour,” said Joost van Ree, director of partner relations at the Cruise Lines International Association. “It is an amazing facility, to put it mildly, and this is a fantastic chance to see one of the industry’s most creative companies in action without leaving the comfort of your home office.”
