If we look back a bit further, in 1994 there were only 20 of us in Alblasserdam, the Netherlands. Until 2006 we worked together in one building. The communication lines were short. We hardly needed any structure and no process descriptions. With a lot of work ethic, motivation, improvisation and cooperation we delivered about 90 installations in 2006. At that time we were already building high-quality installations of which customers were very satisfied.
Our sales engineers were very successful in Holland and Belgium and the number of orders kept increasing. Gradually the building began to become too small. The growing number of employees as well as the continuous growing number of installations that we built didn’t fit in the space anymore. Nowadays there are five buildings in Alblasserdam and one in Nieuwegein. In addition to the head office in the Netherlands, Valk Welding has branches in France, Denmark, the Czech Republic and Sweden. In January 2020 10 new employees have started again and we now work with about 170 men and woman on the dream of Valk Welding.
