Vandemoortele Izegem wins "Factory of the Future" Award

We are extremely proud to announce that for the following 3 years, Vandemoortele Izegem may call itself "Factory of the Future". It's a great honour to join the winning list of other flourishing companies such as Nuscience, Bosch, Valeo, Duracell, Colruyt,… Winning this award is the ice on the cake for all the hard work we've put in the optimization of the Izegem factory during the last few years. 

The Factory of the Future Award is a very honorable prize to win because it's an official recognition for our enterprise that we are going straight forward into the future in the right direction. There is no doubt that the challenges of tomorrow are very demanding. However, Vandemoortele Izegem is a pioneer for other Belgian companies in terms of digitization, talent recruitment and sustainable entrepreneurship. 

"Special thanks goes out to our employees. This reward was only possible thanks to their exceptional skills and dedication."

Our manufacturing plant was especially praised for its valuable customer orientation and the balanced combination of people and machinery work. Our great efforts on sustainability also stood out in front of the jury.  If you are curious what the Factory of the Future in Izegem looks like on the inside, you can watch this video

This award is a major step towards a bright future for Vandemoortele Izegem!
