De Bonte is a family business with many years of experience in the field of precast concrete elements. The company produces on an international level concrete elements of the highest quality for road, sewerage and railway constructions. Manufacturing facilities are available in Belgium, France and Turkey.
With more than 20 years of experience in producing prestressed monobloc sleepers, Betonfabriek De Bonte has gained a considerable expertise in this field. Based on this, they developed their own optimized production machine and moulds which are sold internationally. The company will take charge of the entire project starting from the design of the prestressed sleepers to the installation and the optimization of the production unit.
Good communication, technical expertise and many years of experience are key for the company to meet all specific customer requirements.
