VolkerWessels Telecom | Belgium is part of the closely-knit internal network of VolkerWessels. The Group specializes in designing, developing, building and managing construction projects in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada. We employ 15,000 people at 120 operating companies and offices in those countries. The strength of VolkerWessels stems from our extensive knowledge and expertise of all aspects of construction, cooperation in multidisciplinary and integrated projects, a good geographical distribution, a solid financial position, and motivated and skilled employees.
Our mother company is VolkerWessels Telecom, an independent company within the VolkerWessels Group, with an impressive history and years of experience. The first copper-wire telephone lines in the Netherlands are the roots of this company. With a workforce of 1,800 employees, VolkerWessels Telecom are there for you day and night. Their activities and kwonlegde are diverse, from reliable, high-speed fixed and mobile networks to high-voltage, green energy and security solutions.
In 2001, operator KPN Belgium decided to sell all network building activities. 17 former-employees were outsourced to VolkerWessels and continued in this new company the design and construction of optical fiber networks and points-of-presents (POP's) for KPN Belgium.
Very soon, new business activities were developed in the telecom sector. VolkerWessels Telecom | Belgium expanded to become a valuable partner for fixed network installations and mobile applications. It was just a short step into the contracting business, and we completed our team with our own technicians and workers.
The extension to the security and energy sectors was the next logical step in the development of our company. The activities are closely related to our existing products and services and so we are able to offer our customers a turn-key solution in a number of fields.
Today, we have 120 employees working in Boom for VolkerWessels Telecom | Belgium. We also work abroad on a project basis.
