We operate 3 strategically located terminals in Liège-Monsin, Val Saint-Lambert in Seraing and Tihange.
We serve local and international customers in the steel industry, construction, agricultural and power generation business. Founded in 1920, our knowledge and ambition over the past years have led to a bulk terminal which is unique in its operational flexibility and efficiency. In addition to loading, unloading and transshipment of a broad variety of products, we offer a large asphalted area for open storage as well as multifunctional covered storage facilities.
In the business of extensive bulk supply, we are always alert to the potential environmental impact of the activities. That is exactly why they implement special measures to reduce potential environmental impacts.
