The Sinterklaas Factory

The Sinterklaas festivities traditionally begin each year on first Saturday after 11 November, when Sinterklaas “arrives” by a steamboat at a designated seaside town, supposedly from Spain. The steamboat anchors, then Sinterklaas disembarks and parades through the streets on his horse. To celebrate this Dutch tradition, Airborne is transformed into a gift factory every year. All robots and automation cells get involved in packing or delivering parcels and sweets to the kids of the employees, ending with a gift from Sinterklaas himself. Kids of all ages are welcome to have a look at where mum or dad work, and enjoy the magic of the transformed Christmas factory. A truly extraordinary event for the kids, and let’s be honest, all Airborne employees!
