Our Values

Integrity we are fair and we do what we promise.

Persistence we never quit finding a solution: we see problems as challenges.

Competence we are good at what we do in our domain.

Make progress which lasts so everyone involved gets better.

 

What we do

Drix develops its own manufacturing processes, and many times also its own production equipment.

This allows us to develop products for niche markets.

We control the production process from raw materials to finished product.

We invest a large effort in development of new products and technologies.

Our products are manufactured in Belgium.
