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 made the step towards mechanical engineering ten years after the start of his company. He personally developed a machine for the sorting of eggs in 1936.
When Paul De Pecker joined the company in 1949, the business shifted into a higher gear in the field of development and production of machinery. The focus was fully aimed at the local market during those years.
In the years to follow, the business offerings grew with the performance of ship repairs on inland vessels.
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.
