But customers in West Flanders know better; they can call on the staff in Izegem. We felt it was high time we placed the focus on the West Flanders branch office, so we arranged to talk to (almost) the entire Izegem team.
At the end of the year we will start the complete renewal and renovation of our branch in Izegem!
