Kapelle-op-den-Bos, BE

Mission and Context

Due to the many new investments, expansion and improvement projects in different plants worldwide, the Etex Engineering department of Etex is currently looking for additional support.

Etex Engineering aims to be the leader in all state of the art engineering related technologies and projects to support the strategy of Etex and the technological development of its plants.  Etex Engineering strives to implement change and innovative technologies in all Etex plants worldwide.

From our start in 1905 we pioneered in fibre-cement building solutions. In 2011 we acquired a further 110 years of experience in gypsum and plaster technology. In 1981, we acquired Promat for passive fire protection - a crucial pillar in lightweight construction. Fibre cement and plasterboard have proved durable, beautiful, sustainable and smart materials, to which we have added state of the art passive fire protection and insulation.

The flexibility and efficiency of all of these materials enabled our global expansion and growth. Etex lightweight solutions have helped build and at times rebuild our planet. These last years Etex has pioneered in modular lightweight solutions to build faster, more sustainable, resource friendly and affordable.

Together with our partners and customers we realise inspiring projects.
