Long before Kyoto …

Louis VYNCKE based at the heart of the Flemish flax industry pioneered from a blacksmith in Gullegem to a visionary entrepreneur by converting coal boilers to flax waste fired biomass boilers.

Powered by the success of their father, Michel and Rene VYNCKE moved to Harelbeke, bought an old train hall which still houses one of the company’s production facilities and laid the foundations of today’s VYNCKE.

From the 70’s onwards, the flax commerce disappeared but new possibilities occurred as the wood industry discovered the advantages of energy production from its own wood waste. The international expansion starts with Dirk VYNCKE proclaiming his passion for fire to the world, from Europe to Asia and Latin America.

Today, the 4th generation with Peter and Dieter VYNCKE, continues the success story together with a growing number of Vynckeneers and increasingly complex business solutions.
