WAUTERS has been manufacturing modular wood and metal furniture since 1922…
André Wauters founds his cabinet-making workshop in 1922, in Forest, and creates furniture and frames for both private individuals and businesses.
Wishing to broaden his range, he starts importing metallic shelving from France.
This turns out to be such a success that he soon decides to manufacture the metal parts himself. The complementary combination of wood and metal brings him to the attention of large retailers. That’s how the Wauters company became the furniture supplier for major trading names such as Sarma, Nopri or Innovation. At the time, the company had 15 employees.
Luc Beyne takes over from André Wauters in 1987 and injects new life into the company by creating WAUTERS Plc. Machinery is replaced and/or updated. Major names such as Delhaize, GB and Champion are added to the customer base. The company expands its wood-metal expertise and develops projects for offices and architects in addition to the fitting-out of stores.
The company has grown since the days when it employed 15 people and today it counts over 45 workers and employees capable of facing new challenges involving ingenuity, creativity and quality every day.
By 2009 the premises are starting to feel cramped and Wauters moves to a production plant of over 8,000sqm in Leeuw-Saint-Pierre, at the gates of Brussels.
At the same time, Luc Beyne decides to hand over the keys to the plant to two of his sons who vow to uphold Wauters Company’s long tradition.

This involves taking back your existing equipment, completing it with new items, painting it in a new trendy colour before re-fitting it in your store. A responsible way of renovating your points of sale.
