After obtaining my diplomas as bench fitter and certified welder, I started working at Geelen Counterflow. I am still learning every day, not in a classroom but in a practical environment.
Mike Houben Welder at Geelen Counterflow
I ensure that my colleagues in various production departments receive their sheet metal parts . I am actually an “internal supplier”. Without sheet metal parts , there is no dryer or cooler, so it can be a quite demanding task at times.
Roy Bex Employee of the laser and sheet metal department at Geelen Counterflow
As a project manager, I have frequent contact with both internal and external customers. I really enjoy the mixture of commercial and technical.
Mark Silkens Project Manager at Geelen Counterflow
In my spare time, I am focused on sustainability and reducing waste, and it is important to me to extend this into my work. It’s great to work for a company with the mission “100% sustainable!”
Iris van Kouwen CAD drafter at Geelen Counterflow
As an HR employee, I am in contact with my colleagues a lot. They can come to us with any questions, whether it’s about contracts, training, or just to have a chat. The short lines of communication and informal atmosphere definitely help with that.
Esmee Meijers HR employee at Geelen Counterflow
When I started working here in 2017, I had little experience in the machinery industry. Through Geelen, I have taken welding courses, VCA courses and a Dutch language course. I can develop myself here into a true professional.

I am one of the team leaders in the workshop. The nice thing about this role is that you can pass on the tricks of the trade to the younger generation. I manage my team with a good sense of humour because, besides hard work, there’s always room for laughter.
Will Huijskens Workshop Teamleader at Geelen Counterflow
How exciting it was, to switch employers after more than 20 years! Yet I did it. At Geelen Counterflow it immediately felt good and familiar. And fortunately I still have that feeling.

Core values


We achieve our goals together, inclusively and as one team. We pay attention to one another, listen to each other, and lend a helping hand to ensure that everyone receives the support they need. Not only that, but we also actively contribute to the final outcome and share knowledge and expertise with our colleagues, consistently striving to improve. Together, we can make a real impact.


Our company’s mission embodies respect for our planet and our relationships with customers, suppliers and employees. We value and respect each other, regardless of our backgrounds or origins. We conduct our business responsibly; never hiding in the shadows, always being truthful, and doing what we say we will do. This is how we create a positive difference.


As an independent and autonomous family business, we highly value self-governance. We encourage ownership and offer our employees a great deal of independence in how they approach their work. We blaze our own path and do not follow the herd. We welcome proactivity, initiative, and contributions to solutions. This is how you can make a difference.


We work tirelessly to eliminate waste and continuously seek out improvements. With all of our facilities in-house, from the design office to production, we operate quickly and efficiently. We don’t rely on external parties or outsource production to low-wage countries. We do everything right here in Haelen.
