About Us

We are a versatile and modern machine factory, founded in 1964 in Denekamp, The Netherlands. We focus on production companies that constantly strive for production improvements and require tailor-made solutions. For these companies, we develop, build, modify and maintain special purpose machines, installations, tooling and components.

Our own design department is happy to assist you in finding innovative solutions to your technical challenges, or in optimising your existing designs. Combined with our executing disciplines, our company is able to completely realise special purpose projects, from the first idea up to the installation and maintenance. We have a great number of in-house metalwork skills. You can find a specification of our machinery through the link Machine List.
