Van Hool Today
A varied offer
At present, VAN HOOL builds a complete range of integral buses and coaches, designed and produced according to a modular concept. This has not prompted VAN HOOL to leave aside the status of bodywork builder, an activity thanks to which the company can operate world-wide.
VAN HOOL’s commercial vehicle department manufactures a comprehensive range of transport means including semitrailers, road tankers, tank and bulk containers, swap tanks, swap bodies and container chassis in the most diverse executions and complying with the latest technologies.
Both the bus and the commercial vehicles plant have their own Research and Development Department. They design and test new vehicles and work at a constant improvement and further modernisation of the vehicle-producing machinery.
Quality & reliability
Over the Years, the VAN HOOL products have become a synonym for quality, reliability and a perfect finishing. As a matter of fact, VAN HOOL has an ISO 9001:2008 certificate for quality and ISO14001:2004 for environmental management.
VAN HOOL’s industrial philosophy has been, from the outset, on a thorough standardisation blended with a well thought-out flexibility, which enables the company to meet the specific needs of each particular market and of each client with a maximum of accuracy.
Thanks to these two apparently contradictory principles, VAN HOOL can deliver both large batches of identical products and tailor-made constructions at the same time. Implemented by a thorough-going strategy of investments, innovations and internationalisation on the one hand and the craftsmanship of the VAN HOOL employees on the other hand, these two principles constitute the basis of VAN HOOL’s success.
