First and foremost, we are a family business passionate about wood and products derived from this wonderful resourceful material.
The story began with the founder, Jos De Prins, who started out as head of carpentry for Count Maximillian de Renesse-Breidbach many years ago. As chief carpenter as well as joiner, Jos was responsible for overseeing the restoration of all the wooden components of the Castle de Renesse in Malle. After working successfully as a valued employee for around ten years, Jos De Prins became confident enough to establish his own business in the same field. The aim of this new enterprise was to offer carpentry work of quality and at value for money.
The journey began in 1932 when Jos De Prins laid the foundations of what would eventually become the company known today as Eddy De Prins bvba. In 1965, the running of the business was handed down to Jos’ son, Jan De Prins who in turn passed on the management of the firm to his son, Eddy De Prins in 1987.
At the start of his business venture in 1932, Jos De Prins could never have imagined that such a love for wood would be passed down through the ages with his descendants to rest today with his great grandchildren. The sons of Eddy De Prins still carry the flame that started burning all those years ago, for that all-embracing love for wood and all it entails.
The company of Eddy De Prins passed a turning point in 1999 when it moved both production area and showroom into the current premises at Industrieweg 11 in Beerse. Subsequently, the firm was able to develop new, more efficient working methods through investment in an automated production area and acquisition of the necessary certificates required to supply CE-certified windows to customers on request. Thus, the business was able to adapt to customer needs and become more sensitive to current market trends.
In keeping with development of the business, the company then purchased the premises of Industrieweg 13 and proceeded to launch the production of internal doors and lacquered wood surfaces.
Thus, the company of Eddy De Prins had further expanded production by venturing into the construction of windows and doors which, although undoubtedly look beautiful on their own, offer a total harmonious look when part of a refurbished home! Hence, the creation of this total aesthetic appearance was to be the new aim of the firm.
As you can see, we, at Eddy de Prins company, do not only go for a personal approach. We also ensure that we will follow your project closely from start to finish in order to guarantee the best quality!
