    Willemen Groep is building a brand-new container terminal with a 1.2-kilometre quay on a 53-hectare site at the Tangier-Med cargo port in Morocco for the Dutch company, APM Terminals. It will be the first automated container terminal in Africa and one of the most technically advanced in the world. A team of 80 people is ensuring the project is managed efficiently on site.

    The Elizabeth Center Antwerp, near the Central Station, is equipped with the latest facilities and technical equipment. The new concert and congress hall is part of a fully-fledged complex with ultra-modern facilities and can be combined with the existing halls of the ZOO and the zoo itself. The hall seats between 1,825 and 2,000 guests. Two large auditoria were added to the congress centre, one of 550 m² on the ground floor and a second of 450 m² on the first floor. The building was build to the latest sustainability and environmental standards.

    Just before the start of the new 2016-2017 football season, Willemen completed the second phase of the stadium renovation of first division football team KV Mechelen. We managed to carry out the works very quickly. This was also the case during phase 1, when over a period of three months a stand with 5,000 standing places and 2,120 seats, a fan shop, gym and canteens were built along the pitch. The stand behind the goal (which included corporate boxes, skyboxes, a day nursery and offices) was built aboveground over a period of barely four months. To do this we worked around the clock for six days out of seven.

    In May 2015, Aswebo began renovating runway 07R/25L at Belgium’s national airport. The renovation was essential to ensure the safe and efficient operation of the runways. This is a major renovation project. The top layers of 12 centimetres thick asphalt will be completely replaced. The hard shoulders alongside the runway and the gutter for the runway will then be removed as far as the foundations and reinstalled. The drains for the runway are also being renovated.

WILLEMEN GROEP is one of Belgium’s largest family-owned construction groups. Its fourth generation saw it gain lots of momentum, partly thanks to the acquisition of construction companies such as Franki (1998), Cosimco (2005), Groep De Waal (2005) and road builders Aswebo (2011) and Aannemingen Van Wellen (2014). Willemen General Contractor and Kumpen’s construction department merged to become Willemen Construct on 1 July 2018. Similarly, Aswebo and Aannemingen Van Wellen have also merged with Kumpen’s infrastructure department to become Willemen Infra.

Building for the future doesn’t just require courage and perseverance; it also needs a critical mind to constantly question the status quo, rethink it, and build again. WILLEMEN GROEP brings competences and knowledge together in enthusiastic teams that work together with you in a unique way to achieve the best results and shape the views of tomorrow. We always start with an overall vision for new projects and apply our core values of good service, quality, professionalism and skill. We focus on our customers, service providers and employees in all our activities, because together they form the human capital that makes the difference.

The goal of WILLEMEN GROEP is to realise construction projects and deliver on time according to the wishes of the client, in a way that guarantees quality, safety, and concern for the environment. We are supported in this by our motivated employees and our know-how.

CSR

As a large construction firm, we are aware that we do not operate in a vacuum and that it is important to have a solid anchoring in society. It is therefore our intention to give something back to society on a regular basis. We want to build a better world and in 2017 we took impressive steps to achieve this goal. We are proud of our contribution to shaping the Belgian chapter of the charter of the United Nations that formulates 17 sustainable development goals. WILLEMEN GROEP was one of the first Belgian companies to sign this charter.

WILLEMEN GROEP is growing strongly, both at home and abroad. Hence we are continually looking for new talent with ambition to strengthen our organisation. In this, much importance is attached to individual development, combined with a high level of commitment and good performance. All of this of course in a safe working environment. We promote a no-nonsense company culture with a good sense of initiative and entrepreneurship.
