Who are we?

We recently asked our engineers this question and received varied answers from them...

 

“Not your average engineering office but an office full of experienced engineers”

 “Installers with an engineering brain”

“Engineers with many plusses”

 “Knowledge Centre for Energy & Electricity”

“Engineers with feet on the ground and hands in the oil”

 

 

... in short, a solid team with a broad base and in-depth specialisation

 

At Vanparijs Engineers, we have the right people to guarantee a high level of quality and the necessary depth of service, in every single area. The Vanparijs Engineers team consists of motivated and experienced employees, experts who are well-versed in different disciplines so that they can successfully implement your project from A to Z and maintain your system in optimal condition.

 

 

Our mission, vision & values

Our world runs on energy. Without energy, everything would come to a standstill. Our economy, our society - in short, our daily lives - are all completely dependent on a constant and uninterrupted supply of energy produced, whether by you or by someone else, in an economically and ecologically responsible manner. Our mission is to guarantee a high-quality, reliable, sustainable and accessible energy supply.

For more than 20 years, companies have been relying on us for specialised advice and customised professional solutions in the areas of uninterruptible power supply and decentralised energy production. We design, build, maintain and invest in dynamic UPS systems and combined heat and power (CHP) installations, completely made-to-measure and tailored to your needs. We also guarantee the proper functioning and performance of your systems. 

 

Our vision and approach are unique in the market: we deliver state-of-the-art installations designed with a passion for power & energy, developed and executed with a rational no-nonsense approach in a lasting relationship with our clients. We are able to deliver on our promise thanks to more than 20 years of experience in our field, reliable business partners and a strong and dynamic team of engineers who like to exercise their 'little grey cells' for creating a stable partnership with our clients. 

Our motto: we transform technically complex projects into a unique bespoke product for our clients… THE ART OF POWER!

 

 

Our strength

Our strength lies not just in WHAT we do, but in the WAY we do it. 

What sets us apart from others is our unique combination of in-depth technical knowledge in the areas of electricity, electromechanics and energy and our various levels of expertise that complement one another:

 

  • Academic knowledge of our engineers
  • Pragmatic approach necessary for the construction of installations
  • Hands-on expertise based on 20 year of maintaining UPS and CHP systems
  • Economic/financial basis for investing in these installations

 

All this knowledge and a wide range of services under one roof, one team. We like to call it our "5 star service" (also see our Services):
