Leeuw van de Export, une belle reconnaissance

Yesterday, Flanders Investment and Trade awarded the two new 2019 “export lions” . A recognition for companies that excel in export.

Sioen is delighted with the win in the ‘big companies’ category.

What makes us different?

After different selection rounds, Sioen was one of the three remaining companies going for the award.

All three of us were really strong candidates and could boast excellent export results during the past years. What really made us different was the wide array of textile solutions, based on a complete vertically integrated strategy, in order to offer the customer exactly what he needs. Protection through innovation is our slogan, a constant aspiration for innovation, looking for new opportunities in all areas.

“Entrepreneurship” is as important a keyword at Sioen. We have an inborn West Flemish entrepreneurial drive, no nonsense, as one team, full force ahead. Sioen is a big group, consisting of several smaller companies under one “Sioen roof”.

Our corporate culture is our foundation, based on the best of both worlds. As a family business we are very stable, flexible and have an open and short communication lines, embracing the future. But we are also stock quoted, a requires professionalism, transparency, image, …

The mix of those ingredients was the recipe for yesterday’s award win.

Sioen, one big team

Winning this award is the fruit of excellent team work. A joint effort made possible by more than 4500 Sioen staff based all over the world.

Our future starts today!
