What we do

By combining your product-specific expertise with our extensive knowledge of processes, we can find the right solution for any issue: from supplying a tank with pipelines and a landing and the realisation of a complete process installation with control systems to service and maintenance.


Careful preparation forms the foundation for each one of RIJKERS’ clever designs. To ensure that every investment, expansion or modification of your production process is justified, our process specialists start thinking along with you as early as the feasibility study. What does your process look like? What are your objectives? Based on your specific flow and process diagrams, our engineers will develop a clever design or an ingenious optimisation.

Integral design
As one of the few process specialists, RIJKERS offers integral mechanical, software and electrotechnical designs. In addition to layout drawings of the intended process installation, design graphs, instrumentation lists and process calculations, we also develop the functional description with flowcharts, 3D drawings and a Piping & Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID). You are guaranteed to get a design that meets your every expectation and make a financially sound investment that is fully customised to suit your processes and objectives.

Project team as a foundation for model installation
Process installation manufacture and process optimisation

RIJKERS’ solution-based methods are characterised by the fact that we proactively think along during the realisation of process installations, and propose and implement process optimisations ourselves. Our clients appreciate the added value we bring to any project: from building a landing or new tanks with pipelines to realising complete process installations with control systems.

Process optimisations
The development of any process installation starts with a thorough project plan. RIJKERS assumes full control of the chain management during this stage, regardless of whether the project involves a newly developed system or the modification of existing installations. Are certain modifications required in order to comply with the latest safety requirements? Are there improvement opportunities in terms of efficiency? RIJKERS analyses, advises and implements. The results vary from the implementation of new software applications to establishing a link between an organisation’s office and production environments to facilitate ingenious data analysis and in-depth management information.

Service and maintenance

To RIJKERS, service means more than just reliable deliveries and thorough aftercare. We offer a complete range of services that guarantee a reliable process installation and the continuity of your production – all at an optimal cost of ownership. We not only provide systematic preventative maintenance at the mechanical and electrotechnical levels, but also offer excellent first- and second-line service in the event of a malfunction.

Focus on operational reliability
Preventative maintenance is an important aspect of the continuity of your production. To this end, RIJKERS also provides inspection visits and reports. Because all maintenance activities are properly coordinated, you can rely on a swift process with minimal interference. Of course, we also offer custom maintenance contracts.
