For people, by people
Demival is a sheltered employment company in Deinze that provides meaningful and profitable work for over 450 employees who are distanced from the labour market. In total, Demival has over 600 employees, a large group of whom form the necessary framework and social guidance so that everyone is given maximum opportunities.
Demival is also a production company specialised in packing and repacking foodstuffs (BRC, IFS) such as chocolate. To do so, Demival has at its disposal the right infrastructure, such as hygienic areas and temperature-regulated storage spaces. In addition, Demival also has 3 strong technical departments (ISO 9001): metal processing, cable assembly and circuit board assembly. This means that Demival has the unique possibility of providing total solutions in electrical fitting and installation. It is able to supply fully finished technical end products, for example, starting from the first stage of purchasing goods, then manufacturing components, doing the full fitting, testing and packing. What is more, Demival also has a landscaping and greenery service.
Demival consciously opts for partnerships. Our long-term collaboration with our partners enables us to join the customer in thinking of solutions and optimising the entire supply chain together. Local anchorage with the customers is a great advantage and added value. Demival is also a unique playground for technical innovation and customers can rely on Demival for prototypes, zero series and mass production.
Demival also focuses strongly on sustainability. Besides bearing its responsibility regarding the social aspect of a sheltered employment company, it also invests in the environment. It has an ISO14001 certificate, for example. There are solar panels on all roofs, the landscaping and greenery department works with electrically powered garden tools, bans bottled water and strongly promotes bicycles. These are but a few of numerous other actions it undertakes.

Nieuwe voetpaden en oversteekplaats verhogen de verkeersveiligheid.
Algemeen welzijn stopt niet aan de deur van een bedrijf. Ook daarbuiten is het welzijn en de veiligheid van de medewerkers van groot belang. Daarom is Demival met het stadsbestuur maanden geleden gesprekken gestart en zien we daarvan nu reeds de concrete resultaten: de aanleg van voetpaden en een verhoogde oversteekplaats. Burgemeester Jan Vermeulen en de verantwoordelijke schepenen konden meemaken hoe deze werken door het personeel werden ervaren. Demival huldigde op 19.4.2021 samen met haar veiligheidsambassadeurs en het stadsbestuur de nieuwe omgeving in en koppelde er direct een zwerfvuilactie aan.
Ongoing investment in, and innovation of, technology at Demival
Demival has invested in a ProtoTRAK machine for the Metal Department – which forms one cluster together with the Electrical fitting and installation and the PCB assembly departments. This machine is something between a CNC machine and a milling machine and allows the employees to make more complex pieces that take up less preparation time.
