About Technics & Engineering
At Colruyt Group Technics, we aim to focus on technology and innovation. As a technical service, it is our job to unburden all Colruyt Group brands in terms of maintenance, repairs and safety. Together with a team of more than 1,700 employees, we ensure that everyone can focus on their core activity.
Sustainable and innovative solutions
We take a comprehensive approach to each project: from design and engineering, through purchasing, construction and installation to maintenance and prevention. And we also take this approach to the shops, office spaces, distribution centres and production buildings as well as to our vehicles and machinery. In doing so, we always provide sustainable and innovative solutions, in which we monitor environmental management meticulously and often go above and beyond our statutory obligations.
Colruyt Group Technics is responsible for around 40 to 50 (re)construction projects every year. Here we take almost every phase completely into our own hands. We have our own design & engineering office, which allows us to design efficiently and purposefully according to the assignment. From design to delivery and aftercare: our team of designers, project managers and engineers are jointly responsible for the entire construction process.
In-house management of vehicle and machinery fleet
Colruyt Group has its own fleet of around 5,000 cars, vans and trucks, which is managed and maintained entirely in-house in our garages. We are always looking for sustainable alternatives to traditional fuels and we are investigating the potential of driving on hydrogen, CNG or electricity.
Furthermore, we are also responsible for the extensive and diverse range of machinery. We carry out surveys and examine the design and engineering of production machinery, facilities and automation processes. This applies to both the various logistics distribution centres and Fine Food’s production sites.
Training technical talent
We also have our own Technical School. Colleagues who are interested receive basic training in techniques here. Afterwards, they receive a certificate and are ready for the next stage in their career.
In addition, we also regularly cooperate with schools and universities. From company visits and internships to training materials and fun challenges, we support and organise many initiatives to bring engineering students into contact with the industry.
