Grimbergen History

In 1945 the company was founded as a smith’s working-place by Mr. Henk Grimbergen. Rapidly the activities were extended by fulfilling the need for machinery and equipment in the surrounding industries.

In the course of years Grimbergen evolved into an internationally operating player under the lead of the second generation Freek Grimbergen in the field of tailor made machinery and overall solutions in the form of complete production systems for the heavy industry.

Meanwhile the grandson of the founder (Henk-Jan), took over the lead, but still with the course focused on client specific machines and logistic systems and always faithful to the philosophy which was held high during the past 3 generations: Come to the best possible solutions in close cooperation with the clients to realise an optimal production plant with continuous improvement.

Besides the history and the steady course, the greatest value of the company is the extraordinary motivated team of people with year-long experiences in all possible disciplines, guts and especially innovative capacities. Always with their focus on the best result for our clients.
