The family company Stadsbader was founded in 1946 in Harelbeke. In the meanwhile, the family company is directed by second and third generation Désiré Stadsbader and Dominique Valcke. The acquisitions of Deckx AO and Deckx EM in Dessel (2009) and Van Maercke Prefab in Kluisbergen (2014) were a strong expansion of the specialisation segments and a reinforcement of the market position. Today the group is daily active in about 125 construction sites in Belgian and the neighbouring countries.
Stadsbader, as a constructor, strives in the first place to a stable position in the sector of the public and industrial projects, based on a healthy financial structure. The purpose of the company is to guarantee the satisfaction of the customers by means of high-quality, punctual and correct realisation of the projects, for all parties involved focussed on the Triple P (People-Profit-Planet).
As class 8 constructor, Stadsbader has more than 70 years of experience in infrastructure and construction works. Our competent and dedicated team strives continuously to excellent quality and attaches great importance to innovation by means of continuous further training and with the aid of advanced technologies. For our collaborators we provide the space, time and means to stimulate innovation. Besides, coaching and frequent evaluation is very important as well to maximise the success of each renewal.
Stadsbader tries to integrate systematically ecological considerations in the management of the business. Our new investments always respond to the most severe environmental standards. For our projects sustainability and ecological factors are decisive for the choice of methods and materials. Toolbox meetings inform our team of topics related to environmental awareness.
Our teamwork is the motor of the company and the recipe for success for a lot of excellent realisations. Teamwork requires that every member of the team understands his or her tasks and responsibilities and the goal to be reached. This requires a clear and open communication, in our company translated into consultation in regular intervals in the departments or for each project. A short meeting report resumes the action points and the deadlines, so that everybody knows what is expected.
Stadsbader believes in a healthy mind in a healthy body and likes to stimulate the staff for a balanced and energetic lifestyle. In regular intervals colleagues participate in games of all levels. Moreover, we organise every year the Stadsbader Quart Triathlon/Duathlon on their own premises; an accessible competition with professional approach, but in a cosy, casual atmosphere where everybody is welcome.
Stadsbader practises a sustainable and socially responsible politics, where responsibility, dialogue and mutual respect are very important. We care of everybody and everything around us: customers, collaborators, our partners and the society in which we are active. To streamline our engagement the vzw Stadsbader Charity Fund was constituted, an organisation that is controlled by own staff apart from the business activity.
Stadsbader disposes of the following certificates: ISO 9001; ISO 14001 and VCA**. This means that our company implements a quality management system, an environment management system and a safety management system in the company and in this way respects the lays and rules of the sector. This is necessary for more and more customers who preferably wish to do business with certified contractors.
