Supplying and installing 11 km of mobile fencing at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol - a routine job @ Heras

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, one of the world’s busiest airports, is constantly in motion. Day and night, aircraft depart and there are people at work; each year, approximately 58 million passengers travel via Schiphol.
