Fred Vanderbeke established his company Fred Vanderbeke Inc. in September 1983. Very quickly, the young company grew into a well structured SME with 5 qualified employees. In 1991, Fred Vanderbeke received on behalf of the Association of the Flemish Chambers of Commerce the Hermes price for his exemplary 'management of an SME'. In the nineties Fred Vanderbeke Inc. extended its geographical scope by opening a local Dutch and French subsidiary. In 2007, a German sales office was also added to the group and at that time the Vanderbeke companyname underwent its alteration into the more European-like "Linum Europe". At present, Fred Vanderbeke and his son Jan Vanderbeke, chair from the head office in Kuurne, a solid and respected family company group worthy of your trust.
