beMatrix’s growth validated by its inclusion in the European Business Awards organisation’s ‘Ones to watch’ list

The European Business Awards organisation announced its latest 'Ones to watch' list on Thursday, 12 December, which included the best companies in 34 European countries. ach of the nominees has performed exceptionally in one of the 12 EBA categories and reflects the programme's core values: innovation, success, and ethics in their business activities.

beMatrix, a manufacturer of innovative modular stand-building systems, was selected to be on this list along with 65 other Belgian companies, which is yet more validation of their growth in the stand-construction and events niche market.

beMatrix was founded in 2004 by the current CEOs, Stefaan Decroos and Edwin Van der Vennet, and has experienced immense growth in recent years. In the past 13 years, the global turnover has increased from 1 to 25 million euros, there are now 120 employees active worldwide, and the beMatrix systems are available in 61 countries via divisions in the USA, the UK, Scandinavia, Asia, and Australia. There are approximately 80,000 new beMatrix frames produced and put on the market annually.

CEOs Stefaan Decroos and Edwin Van der Vennet: 'We are incredibly proud of this recognition and we hope that we can continue this positive trend in the future – we would also like to thank all our employees and our loyal customers for their efforts and trust in beMatrix throughout the years.'

More reasons for the company being included in the 'Ones to watch' list, in addition to the significant yet stable financial growth, are the R&D efforts made by beMatrix and the importance of sustainability in developing the product range.

Companies on the 'Ones to Watch' list are from many diverse sectors, from production to retail, agriculture to technology, and in many sizes, from start-ups to billion-dollar companies. Every company on the list now has the opportunity to compete for one of European Business Awards 12 categories and become the national champion in their country. If successful, they will compete in the grand finale in May 2018, after which the 12 European winners will be announced.
