  • limiting our environmental footprint

A brief history of VPD

  • 2017

    New corporate identity

    In 2017, the day-to-day management was assumed by the two business managers: Eric Debraekeleer and Dirk Van Peteghem, with Eric entrusted with financial and commercial aspects, and Dirk with the operational dimension and IT. Together with Benny Rener and Nathalie Debraekeleer they make up the management team of VPD.

    Construction also got under way on a new building in Tubize of 2,500 m² extra space.

    November 2017: The corporate identity and therefore also the logo of VPD, which had already been thoroughly revamped, were now further deployed in the general communication. Some lorries were given a new, striking look, and the website, www.vpd.eu also got a makeover. We communicate via electronic means with our customers on a regular basis.

    In the future, VPD will focus even more on working conditions and quality, as our people constitute our most important winning asset.
