Development and expansion
SICK nv/sa was founded in 1987 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of SICK AG. It was first introduced to a large specialist audience from the Belgian and Luxembourgish market at the Eurotech trade fair in 1988. The following year, it set up an additional subsidiary of its own in Asse, Belgium. Despite an extremely challenging market, SICK nv/sa emerged triumphant from its first decade, which was one of many changes and new developments. The figures say it all: sales increased sixfold and the number of customers eightfold, while the workforce grew from 5 to 28.
SICK's product families became established on the Belgian market in no time at all. SICK nv/sa is a fast-growing company that has built up an impressive list of references over the years.
SICK nv/sa currently employs 45 members of staff, with annual sales amounting to EUR 24 million.
SICK nv/sa attaches great importance to making continuous improvements to its customer service by means of a complete package of services and training sessions. Its newsletter, SICK Info, keeps customers up to date with the latest information. Since the first issue of the newsletter was published under the old title of SICK Focus, SICK nv/sa employees have used it to establish a large number of contacts.
