1Entrance

Welcome to the Van Hoof Groep. We are happy to have you in our modern building located at Stikker 19 in Asten. On arrival at our grounds you can’t miss our displayed work of art: two components that, together, depict chips in the machining process. Designed by Henk Geel and made by our sheet-metal workshop, this work of art has been inextricably linked with the Van Hoof Groep since its opening in 1996.

2Work preparation

No matter what your challenge is, professionals at the Van Hoof Groep interpret every need into a realisable solution. Do you have a need for technical support, specialist knowledge or co-engineering? You’ll find the right people to resolve this at the work preparation department.

3Staff room

The beating heart of our company – in some respects at least – is our staff room. This is where we get together at 09:45 for a well-deserved coffee break, or to enjoy our meals at lunchtime, and where the evening shift can get a hot meal. An extra bit of relaxation is also possible at a table football table, dart board and in the garden.

4Gear cutting

Gear cutting and drive components are our speciality. We have extensive knowledge in this field and encounter minimal competition. This is also evident from the impressive list of machines and the best software that our gear cutting experts work with on a daily basis.
