In 2014, Voortman opened a subsidiary in Nantes, France. The company name Voortman was, also thanks to our French agent, already known in France. However, customers were reluctant because of the lack of a local subsidiary with a French speaking service department. The opening of the new office, with Sébastien Cantin as an Area Sales Manager and its own service engineer, changed this.

Als Voortman Steel Group merken wij dat succesvol ondernemen steeds meer een samenspel is tussen diverse vakgebieden. Bedrijfskundige aspecten spelen hierbij een steeds grotere rol. Project- en productmanagement, procesoptimalisatie en kwaliteitsbeheer hebben inmiddels een vaste plek gekregen binnen onze organisatie.

In March 2005, Voortman was established in Kankakee, Illinois. Today, with a market share of 30%, Voortman USA is one of the main machine suppliers in the American steel industry. Adrian Morrall, President, talks about the development of the company.

The Voortman Steel Group invests in its relationship with various regional educational institutions. Not only to gain knowledge of the latest technology and developments ourselves, but also to transfer our knowledge to the students here. With an average age of 32 years, to many Voortman employees it feels like only yesterday they were at school themselves!
