VDL ETG Projects is continuously looking for the best technical solutions to enable our customers business. On a daily basis we are involved in the application and development of the latest technical opportunities with a view to strengthening our position in a competitive global market. In that process, we view innovation as an essential element of our policy, based on the principles of creativity, daring and craftsmanship.

Enabling product & process innovation

Increasingly, VDL ETG Projects is involved at an early stage in co-developing their products, together with their clients. We can offer added value by employing our knowledge in the field of materials, production, assembly and supply chain management. The shift is taking us from ‘build to print’ and ‘build to specifications’ via ‘build to requirements’ (by adding additional specifications and solutions) until we eventually arrive at ‘build to roadmap’ (full service through to manufacture including innovations added for the client).

Investment in the future

The VDL Groep maintains a consistent commitment to research and development, with over 1000 employees actively engaged in R&D activities. According to the R&D Top 30 companies ranking published by Technisch Weekblad (Top 30 Company R&D), VDL Groep consistently secures a strong presence within the top 10 of the Netherlands' most innovative companies, reflecting its stable position in the field of innovation.
