Marcelo Xavier (Brazil- Global market manager)

“Today’s customers ask quality and flexibility. You can’t do that by bringing pre-existing answers. So we work closely with our customers to make sure our solutions are perfectly suited to their needs. It’s our ambition to find a state-of-the-art solution to every problem, however customer-specific it may be.”

Michaela Benova (Slovakia – Process engineer)

“All around the world Bekaert applies the same high standards not only to our products and facilities but to our people as well. In fact in Bekaert we design, develop and build our production lines ourselves, so we are sure that everyone works according to the same standard, wherever they are.”

Debra Wood (U.S. - Global Manufacturing Manager)

“better together” defines our way of working with our customers and colleagues in our quest for excellence in everything we do.

José Augusto (Brazil - Senior Process Engineer)

“I have previously worked in Bekaert plants in Brazil, the US and China and am currently based in Belgium. At each move, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. But I had faith that Bekaert knew me well enough to know where I could fit in. I am Brazilian, my boss is Belgian, my colleagues have different nationalities but we’re all working towards the same goals.”
