As a daughter company of Aswebo, Van Wellen is a part of Willemen Groep, one of the larger players in the construction sector, since 2014. Some of the Willemen Groep's most important partners are Aswebo, Willemen General Contractor, Franki Construct, Franki and Cosimco.
AANNEMINGEN VAN WELLEN was set up as a general contracting company in 1944 and became part of Willemen Groep in December 2014. Its core activities include general road works, resurfacing and road construction. In December 2014, the construction department split away from the company and today Aannemingen Van Wellen operates as an autonomous company which forms part of the Aswebo road construction group.
Since it was established, Van Wellen has been involved in port works. Today, we are still a strong player at the port of Antwerp and also have clients in the petrochemical industry. We have been awarded VCA-P certification for these works amongst other things. One of our specialisations is the construction of premises for port-related activities such as transshipment terminals.
Since 2008, road construction and maintenance works have played an increasingly important role in our activities. Both of our asphalt plants at Schoten and Doel are easily accessible by road and water and are located on the strategically important Antwerp-Brussels axis. We have approximately 170 motivated and experienced employees who are involved in the realisation of our private and public projects (including PPP projects) on a daily basis from their base at our head office in Kapellen. The mix of public and private projects has brought important added value for the group and our clients.
Flexibility is one of our company's main trump cards and one which enables us to respond quickly and efficiently to the wishes of our clients. We provide a safe working environment for our employees and are environmentally aware as shown by the VCA** and ISO certificates that we have been awarded.
