Our trump cards
- Use of most recent technology
- A team of experienced persons
- Vicinity of the port of Antwerp and hence the possibility to carry exceptional loads both by road and water networks
- Focus on quality (separate stainless steel processing, operating to various standards)
- The flexibility and drive that characterize SMEs
The latest technology and enthusiastic specialists
All major machines in the Deprest site date from 2013 or later, meaning that your projects are being executed with the aid of cutting-edge technology, which results in better quality products. But most significant are still the skills and the experience of Deprest and our employees. Deprest can look back on 80 years of experience, and on the recent reinforcement with experts coming from G&G International and Inalco.
New investments in 2016
The workshop building that was constructed in 2013 had become too small and was in 2016 expanded with 1700 m2. The works will be completed around the turn of 2016. The additional part is suitable for vertical construction of tanks and will also include a new pickling hall. There have in addition been new investments in the field of machinery, such as the new Plasma Keyhole installation, in perfect complement to the impressive investment programme that was carried out in 2013.
Deprest chooses quality:
- ISO certified according to ISO 9001:2008, as well as according to the ISO 3834-2/BS welding standard
- Structures work according to the various standards and codes
- Broad expertise with regard to calculation and design
- Practices separation of stainless steel and steel during production
- Works with state-of-the-art machinery
- And very competent, experienced people
- Extensive know-how in post-treatments and finishes
Deprest has spent several years installing cutting-edge technology and equipment.
Ever since 2013 when we added a new building, we have equipped ourselves with the latest technology in the areas of cutting, rolling and welding, and our new building has even been extended because it was too small. Notwithstanding all this new technology, we wouldn’t have gotten where we are without skilled professionals.
Deprest has invested in a new heavy-duty profile bending machine
In the context of the workshop expansion, Deprest has invested in a new heavy-duty profile bending machine, of the Sahinler HPK 100 type. This new bending machine allows us to significantly expand our capabilities.
This machine will be used for our own production, but also for subcontracting projects.
New PED regulation
After more than 10 years, a new Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) recently came into force, PED 2014/68/EU, which replaces the former 97/23/EU.
This applies to all pressure vessels which are sold on the European market after 19/07/2016. It goes without saying that Deprest will apply the new regulation.
It would take us too long to explain all the differences here, but feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
New! Plasma keyhole welding installation broadens Deprest technical range
It’s operational! Our new plasma keyhole welding installation!
Once our people were trained, they tried it out in real-life production conditions with very good results, for both butt welds and fillet welds.
The installation offers opportunities for plasma keyhole welding as well as TIG welding.
