History

historiek04On 12 September 1946, Constant Janssens founded a cabinet maker's shop called Janssens in Lier (Belgium). In 1956, Janssens became a construction company specialised in arches. These arches were used in the construction of greenhouses, sports halls and machine shops. Janssens built up a solid reputation in this period. The workshops amounted to 300m2. Lack of space forced the company to move to new premises in 1960 on the Mechelsesteenweg. The workshops now covered 1,250m2 which was doubled again 2 years later. In the seventies, son René strengthened the family business. Under his impulse, the traditional use of wood was replaced by aluminium which formed the basis for the current production of verandas, summer houses, swimming pool covers and hobby greenhouses.

In 1984, the first products were exported to European countries. The universal range was welcomed with open hands in the rest of Europe and exports became hugely important for the company. The company grew and has continued to grow since. In 1996, the latest aluminium working tools were added to the already existing machinery and the design and development division was fully automated. The company now covers an area of about 6,500m2.
