Belgium’s largest family-owned construction group arrives in Luxembourg
THE LARGEST FAMILY CONSTRUCTION GROUP IN BELGIUM
Willemen Groep is today Belgium’s largest family-owned construction group. The Group’s expansion has gathered momentum in the fouth generation of family ownership, with, among others, the acquisition of contractors Franki (1998), Cosimco (2005), Groep De Waal (2005) and road builders Aswebo (2011) and Aannemingen Van Wellen (2014).
We offer our customers a highly complementary range of building activities, from civil engineering and industrial construction to residential and non-residential projects to road building, either alone or in consortia. Such synergies not only open up many more opportunities to us but also strengthen the bond between our companies and our image.
Activities: Buildings (Residential, Commercial, Industrial & Logistics, Offices, Education, Public, Care, Social housing, Sports & Leisure) – Civil engineering – (Rail Infrastructure, Industry, Bridges & Tunnels) – Road construction – Renovation – Real estate development, Design & Build, DBFMO – PPP
2,300 employees, 625 million euro in sales
Willemen Groep has 2,300 employees and creates indirect employment for many times this number. A number of impressive projects have been realised throughout all the branches that together represent annual sales of 625 million euro.
In recent years we have become increasingly active abroad, both as part of our own plans for growth and in response to growing demand from a number of emerging markets.
Our many impressive construction projects in Belgium have not gone unnoticed, also abroad. Increasingly, we are being asked to join forces with other companies on challenging international projects.
Willemen Groep is especially keen to apply its expertise in Central and Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Our added value here lies in our excellent know-how and project management, together with the involvement of local people and resources.
One prestigious international reference is undoubtedly the embassy we are currently building in Kinshasa. It is a double first: the first Belgian embassy that will also house Dutch and Luxembourg diplomats, and the first passive building in Central Africa.
In December 2016, Willemen Groep won the tender for the construction of a complete container terminal for APMT in the port of Tangier in Morocco. This project is a new big step in our international expansion.
Since late 2016, we are also active in the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg, with both construction and real estate development as our main activities.
“ENTERPRISE OF THE YEAR”
In 2013 Willemen Groep received the prestigious “Enterprise of the Year” award for its dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit. This prize is a real incentive for all employees to continue grow the company, and serves to showcase the Group’s values and ambitions.
