Technical craftsmanship since 1926

The roots of De Pecker Gent go back to 1926. That is the year in which Remi De Pecker founded a company for the maintenance and repair of machinery and steam-driven inland vessels. The business activities changed throughout the years, but the focus on technical craftsmanship has always been preserved.

Development and construction of machinery

In addition to maintenance and repairs, Remi De Pecker already took the step from exclusively ship repairer for inland vessels to general machine construction ten years after starting his company. In 1936 he personally developed a machine for sorting eggs that was very advanced at the time.

With the arrival of Paul and Robert De Pecker in 1949, the company shifted up a gear in the development and production of machines. In those early years, the focus went entirely to the local market, which was quickly expanded to customers worldwide in the late 1960s.

In the years that followed, the business range grew with the performance of maintenance and repair work on electromechanical machines and installations, as well as the production and supply of more complex mechanical parts, be it milling, turning or welding or a combination of these.

New location in the seaport of Ghent

The year 2002 was an important milestone for the company. The company built a new location in the seaport of Ghent that year. The repair of ships was discontinued.

Since then, the attention is completely focused on industrial maintenance and mechanical engineering. The start-up of the 24/7 intervention service was also introduced that year.

With a hall of 6000 m² and a height of 20 meters, we can serve you perfectly for all your projects.
