We know everything there is to know about packaging. Pieter Van de Velde produced his first cardboard packaging for local lingerie and shoe workshops in Schellebelle back in 1939. A packaging expert in ecological cardboard solutions for numerous industries, we can draw on more than 83 years’ experience in the business. From purely functional to the most luxurious solutions.
We can also supply packaging machines tailored to your needs. All knowhow concentrated in one place. We assume full responsibility from concept and design to production and we supply the best suited machines so that customers can run their own production line.
Passion, craft and an entrepreneurial spirit brought us to our present position as an established, trusted name in packaging. We are an international group active in 17 European territories, with a new-build head office in Wetteren, built in 2008 after a fire. And we are ambitious. Our international network continues to expand, powered by our ambition to be the number one name in cardboard packaging solutions.
Always with deference to our family values and faithful to the vision and values of Pieter Van de Velde. Son-in-law José Roman, who took over the reins of the company with his wife Jacqueline, continues to play an active role in the business, together with granddaughter Dominique and her husband Philip.
Our informal culture is centred on people, both in house and beyond. Reliability, flexibility, expertise and sustainability are the key values that drive our mission to create and supply high-quality packaging products and services. Our recyclable cardboard packagings, for example, are a fitting response to the issues that plague plastic.
We work closely with customers to produce product packaging that looks fantastic and fits seamlessly into the logistical process. Our quest for new technologies to improve the efficiency, sustainability and attractiveness of our packaging processes is never-ending.
We can take as much responsibility for your project as you want. We design and produce personalized packaging solutions and can even supply the machines you need to automate your packaging line.
Sustainability is in our DNA. It’s expressed in a constant quest for packaging that is easier to recycle and greener production technologies. Because cardboard is the future of packaging.

We are a reliable partner with more than 80 years’ experience and a high international profile, coupled with a strong devotion to family values. We like personal, friendly, open communication.
Packaging experts since 1939, we are committed to developing innovative high-quality solutions for a whole host of industries. A new challenge? We are delighted to take it on.
