Jansen Cleanrooms has acquired Belo Electrics in Oudsbergen, Belgium. Belo Electrics has long been a dedicated project partner for the automation of HVAC installations and cabling in cleanroom projects. The acquisition fits in with the growing market demand (particularly in the life sciences, chemicals, biotech, and petrochemical sectors) for technical knowledge about cleanrooms.
Eric Vanhees, COO of Jansen Cleanrooms, explained the growth: "Customers are looking for certainty and faster delivery. That's why they choose a construction partner who follows the entire process, from design to execution."
"Back in 2012, we launched 'Techniques' as an additional core competence within Jansen Cleanrooms," Vanhees said. "By focusing more and more on 'comprehensive projects', the demand for high-tech cleanroom projects has grown exponentially in recent years."
He explained that in order to strengthen the Belgian company's position in the growing market for 'Design & Build' projects, it acquired Belo Electrics in Oudsbergen.
Vanhees said: "Because we have been working together for years, we know what's what when it comes to the automation of HVAC installations in cleanroom projects. As a result of the acquisition, Jansen Cleanrooms gains the highly skilled technical profiles needed to stay at cruising speed."
The requirements for finished products in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, microelectronics, cosmetics, and food are becoming increasingly stricter, driving demand for cleanrooms. That is why the need for technical knowledge from life sciences, chemistry, biotech, and petrochemistry is enormous. This leads to more and more assignments for Jansen Cleanrooms.
Vanhees said: "Production techniques are becoming more complex and 'cleaner'. Jansen Cleanrooms responds to this by working with customers to study how to better control their production processes. At the same time, we are constantly improving our own technical concepts in order to stay ahead of the stricter requirements for finishing and air cleanliness."
Customers are looking for certainty and faster cleanroom delivery by choosing a construction partner who follows the entire process, from design to execution. Vanhees explained that Jansen Cleanrooms always begins with several thorough technical meetings with the user and the cleanroom manager and based on this, it makes a complete design that meets the expectations and imposed specifications.
