It goes without saying that our focus lies on the specific applications that you, the client, are looking for. By cleverly combining all knowledge, we contribute to entire or partial process installations that are perfectly tailored to suit your technical and financial situation. This results in minimal operational expenses. We focus extensively on ingenious project management, and quickly and efficiently take the right steps: from mechanical design to implementation within your production line.

Process management and safety first
At RIJKERS, sound risk management, high-grade sanitary design and a sharp eye for (food) safety go hand in hand.

This is evident in e.g. the CIP, SIP and lime milk installations we realise. Furthermore, RIJKERS has been ISO and VCA** certified for more than twenty years and we possess the most extensive welding qualifications.
