Speech Mr. Geert Moerman (Managing Director VOKA)
My name is Geert Moerman, I am the Managing Director of the Chamber of Commerce East-Flanders.
I am very glad to express my greatest respect and joy on this 25th anniversary of E-Crane, one of the beautiful hidden pearls of our Flemish industry.
E-Crane sounds like an app, but produces in fact one of the most robust cranes I ever saw.
On top of this – and speaking as non-technician- I am always touched by the beauty of these cranes. In the port of Ghent, an important European port for those who wouldn’t know, the scrap cranes of Galloo/Van Heyghen recycling, played an important role as actors in a cultural event last year. And they did very well!
I want to congratulate, in the name of the community of entrepreneurs in Flanders, Lieven and Geert for their courage to start up this company 25 years ago, the ambition they had to expand it to an international player, and their commitment towards all their clients, collaborators, partners and our whole community for many years to come.
