Let us entertain you

The arts have a special way of bringing people from many different cultures and tastes together. Arguably, one of the best arts that builds a sense of togetherness is music. Attending a concert with family, friends or business contacts will surely create a lasting memory. The Sportpaleis Group, headquartered in Merksem, offers customers eight different venues in four cities. These venues range from smaller theaters that host dramatic productions for 1,000 visitors up to large halls that can house 18,000 people and play host to global superstars and large sporting events.


Hardware sitting pretty

Challenges can make you or break you, so much is clear. Belgian company Discorp n.v./s.a. originally specialized in the distribution of compatible RAM modules for computers to companies across Belgium. The company successfully used the challenge of a changing market in the early 2000s to ring in a second business phase. Today, Discorp is an ICT hardware specialist and an advisor for its clients on the perfect optimized workspace.


Strong roots

Forestry, when conducted according to appropriate standards, is by no means equivalent to deforestation. On the contrary, it aides the forest’s healthy development and thus helps support its eco system. In Belgium, Huet Bois SA is a provider of high-quality wood and wooden products from locally and responsibly sourced material.


The power of the pod

Technology continues to develop at an astounding rate, and the latest best software solutions are quickly replaced by newer innovations in the industry. This fast-paced environment means that business owners and operators need a qualified IT team that is cutting edge and is invested in the client’s well-being. ACA IT-Solutions NV, headquartered in Belgium, is the answer to software success. The company is known for its high-quality consultancy, implementation and integration of individually built solutions.


Cleaning tools across borders

Supermarket and hypermarket chains, DIY stores, discounters and other large retailers are increasingly expanding across borders. This presents challenges for suppliers including own-brand (or private label) suppliers, who need to provide uniform stock for stores which may be thousands of kilometres apart. As a one-stop-shop for private label cleaning equipment, Belgian company PDC BRUSH has gained a competitive edge by rapidly adapting its business to this new trend.


Getting genuinely involved

Lamination is a manufacturing technology whereby different materials are permanently assembled to achieve enhanced durability, strength or other desired properties. Examples include laminate flooring, front windshields and plastic-laminated photographs. A recognized expert in this multifaceted production method is Texla N.V. As its customers’ full-service lamination partner, the family enterprise gets involved along the entire value chain, from the basic engineering to the finished product.


Skills and personality for success

The need for good people is higher than ever before. They are the basis for the success of a company. For this reason, human resources has become an important part of the strategy of every successful business. Intys HR S.A. based in Brussels is an HR specialist focusing on operational consulting and people development.
