Van Eycken: stronger market position
Van Eycken produces, delivers and installs metal structures in the infrastructure works sector. The SME is fully committed to innovation. Road safety barriers that comply with European standard NBN EN 1317 are the best proof of this. When the use of European certified crash barriers became mandatory in 2006, the family business decided to develop and produce them themselves. They used the strict NBN EN 1317 standard. Now, after several years of trial and error, Van Eycken has six different safety barriers that comply with the NBN EN 1317 standard. They all meet the highest quality requirements and guarantee's needed.
The Organisation is now one of the few Belgian producers among the big foreign companies. "Entering the field of the big players as an SME is exciting and instructive," says Annemie Van Eycken. "Moreover, our turnover has increased. Keeping production in our own hands and country feels right."
