Facility management

Our facilities department is responsible for our company facilities. The facilities department has a supporting role in ASTRON. Because they provide all necessary facilities, all of the staff can do their work well.

Among the responsibilities of the department are the canteen, reception, events, warehouse and security. In addition to our office, we have a guest house, a kind of mini hotel with ten rooms. The facilities department manages the guesthouse.
