1963 - Foundation

1963 - Foundation

Spiromatic was founded in 1963 by Adelin Dhont and Mariette Vermaerke, the parents of the current owners and business managers. Spiromatic initially produced storage and transport systems for nutrients.

1968 - Composite silos

1968 - Composite silos

Adelin Dhont was a visionary, and constantly ventured into unknown territory with new ideas to always stay one step ahead of the larger competitors. He enjoyed great success here, and as early as in the sixties used the innovative product composite, a composition of polyester resin and glass fibre, to build silos for nutrients.

1969 - Spiral transport

1969 - Spiral transport

Adelin Dhont decided to make his innovative product available for use for the industrial storage of flour and sugar. At the same time Spiromatic pioneered in using alternative spiral transport in large-scale food processes.

1972 - Hybrid transport & minor ingredients

1972 - Hybrid transport & minor ingredients

The combination of modern pneumatic transport techniques and the unique properties of spiral transport led Spiromatic to design 'hybrid transport'. Industrial food companies then saw an ideal solution to replace their energy-hungry spiral and pneumatic transport processes by flexible, more accurate and dust-free spiral transport. The foundations of Spiromatic's current main activity had then been laid.

1985 - Nazareth

1985 - Nazareth

Since 1985 Spiromatic has been operating from De Prijkels industrial estate in Nazareth on premises measuring 80,000 m³.

1997 - Extension

1997 - Extension

2009 - Europe

Innovation and daring to change in the food market still runs through the veins of the current management with this manifesting itself in strong annual growth. Accordingly, in this period Spiromatic became one of the most important players in ingredient processing in Europe.
