About us

History

1973-1983

The sole proprietorship came into existence in 1973. After ten years, the business evolved into a partnership, called Lakkerij Vandereyt Bvba.

1993

Another 10 years later, in November 1993, Lakkerij Vandereyt was acquired from Simonne Nilis, the widow of Mr Vandereyt, by the holding company Het Veer. A group mainly active in the electricity sector but thus puts its first foot in the surface treatment sector.

1993 – 2023

In 2023, the Paint Shop will celebrate 50 years and 30 years within the Het Veer group. Meanwhile, the group has also acquired a second company specialising in industrial metal -coating. Thanks to their expertise in exceptional corrosion-preventive coatings, we are further expanding our range of coatings: with Lakkerij Vandereyt and Van Os-Duracoat together, we now offer the whole range of organic coatings, from wet coating over powder coating to thermoplastic and even fluorine coatings.

It’s time for renewal and modernisation: Lakkerij Vandereyt becomes V coat.
