“Moving to Green” is the name of a dynamic process, which was started up by DEMAN in 2010.
We successfully achieved a reduction of our ecologic footprint, through all kinds of actions that fall into three main areas:

Constructiewerkhuizen DEMAN started up modestly in 1945, with the construction of flax processing machines. The inventive Maurice Deman (°1904 † 1998) was the founder of the company, and on 13 February 1953 it was transformed into a limited liability company.
Since the area around Courtrai had been a centre of the flax processing industry for many years, there was a direct and very large market for a totally new, combined flax-rippling and combing machine that included seed removal.
The first telescopic construction crane was produced in 1955. Due to the unique self-constructing system, and besides flax machines, this new product became a big success. After manufacturing more than 5,000 units, production was stopped in the middle of the 70s.
Under the management of Eric Deman, the first DEMAN overhead cranes and portal cranes were built in 1969, together with the first DEMAN concrete plants. The demand for overhead crane grew so quickly that the other products, which were strongly sector-oriented, were removed from the product range.
The 2,000th overhead crane was built in 1995, and in the meantime we are not far from the number 4,000 ... .
Since 2011, intelligent solutions have been successfully applied on a major scale, and in 2016 this led to the establishment of the "TRISKEL competence centre", which clearly shows the direction in which our future is going…
